Adaptability

The project is a collaboration among research scientists and water infrastructure agencies to predict the future impacts of climate change on drainage infrastructure and develop appropriate adaptation strategies. The collaborative effort between researchers and various stakeholders facilitates direct dissemination of science-based information to improve community capacity to prepare for, adapt to, mitigate, and recover from hazards. The outcomes of this project are expected to aid water agencies in long-term decision making, provide guidance to water sector policymakers, and educate residents of the region on the current challenges and engage them in the decision-making process. Overall, this project seeks to minimize the cost of climate change impacts in the long-term, make coastal South Carolina communities safer and more resilient to the impacts of climate change.
