The Charleston Resilience Network is hosting a Hampton Roads/Charleston Coastal Resilience Knowledge Exchange. The goal of the workshop is to promote coastal resilience knowledge and learning among practitioners and to provide a forum to discuss a regional approach to coastal resilience issues. Training topics covered will include: planning for sea level rise and flooding, strategies to live with water (engineering and natural solutions), working with FEMA and the Community Rating System, building relationships with nonprofits, and building regional resilience capacity.
