Resilience Building Workshop: Coastal Flood Preparation
Flooding is the most fatal, and catastrophic threat to coastal communities due to the devastating effects of climate change. Coupled with the growing strength and intensity in hurricanes each year, coastal communities across the nation (and to greater extent the world) find themselves increasing in the path, and suffering the consequences of outdated infrastructure. Historically, low-income communities of color have disproportionately been impacted due to poor infrastructure and insufficient resources when faced with these environmental challenges. Both workshops are aimed at shifting coastal GA communities from not just being climate impacted, but climate informed, and will provide participants with intel on conditions which lead to flood events, how to evaluate their community’s risk and equip coastal residents with resources on how to prepare their property and neighborhoods from the worst effects of flooding.
