Creating Resilient Communities


This is a project in the Charleston, South Carolina region to help residents understand the natural hazards facing their communities and to plan for them using holistic planning and management strategies. The initiative will map regional resources and identify vulnerable neighborhoods and facilities. It will identify areas at risk from natural hazards and conservation areas that may help to mitigate hazards’ impacts. Project support teams will use computer applications to help residents visualize alternative future scenarios, compare impacts from the different development-conservation alternatives, and select preferred scenarios.
