Charleston is confronted with every known water hazard and faces intense land use and development pressures. To expand the conversation around water and resiliency, HCF (in partnership with the City of Charleston Office of Resilience) launched the “Water Dialogues,” a free virtual lecture series to engage the Lowcountry community and inform decision-making about best practices in water management, assessing risk, and the many quality of life issues related to water for this generation and the next.
On June 29th at 4pm, we are excited to host the second virtual lecture in this series with Ben Duncan, Chief Resilience Officer for the State of SC. SC’s Office of Resilience was established in 2020, and Duncan will discuss the forthcoming statewide Resilience Plan to mitigate risk and facilitate recovery. The Resilience Plan will evaluate South Carolina’s eight major watersheds, examining the flood risks that exist in each area and identify potential losses from severe weather events and other natural catastrophes, including flooding, wildfires, and drought conditions. This webinar is free and open to the public. You must register in order to receive the link to access the Virtual Lecture.
