NWIRP Strategic Plan – Final

Download the NWIRP Strategic Plan 

The National Windstorm Impact Reduction Act Reauthorization of 2015 directs the NWIRP Interagency Coordinating Committee to develop a Strategic Plan that includes:

  • Prioritized goals for the Program that will mitigate against the loss of life and property from future wind-storms;
  • Short-term, mid-term, and long-term research objectives to achieve those goals;
  • A description of the role of each Program agency in achieving the prioritized goals;
  • The methods by which progress towards the goals will be assessed; and
  • An explanation of how the Program will foster the transfer of research results into outcomes, such as improved model building codes.

The Strategic Plan was developed by the Program agencies and Windstorm Working Group following review and assessment of prior national research needs and planning documents and consideration of stakeholder input obtained through the NWIRP Strategic Planning Stakeholder’s Workshop, held at the National Science Foundation on June 17, 2016.
