NPF Award Winner: The Feddie Reporting Award - Christopher Flavelle

Christopher Flavelle 2018

Bloomberg News

Bloomberg News reporter Christopher Flavelle covers climate adaptation policy and its impact on business, politics and society. He was previously an editorial writer for Bloomberg View and a senior policy analyst at Bloomberg Government; before joining Bloomberg, he wrote for ProPublica, Slate and Newsweek. He grew up in Toronto.

NPF judges said: “Christopher Flavelle of Bloomberg News provided an eye-opening investigation into flaws in so-called managed retreat in federal flood insurance practices. The National Flood Insurance Program is a case study of federal policy that simply doesn’t work.”
