With increasing frequency and severity of coastal hazards across the country, the need for innovative resilience infrastructure continues to grow. Nature-based solutions are becoming preferred infrastructure practices due to their ability to increase the resilience of both human and wildlife communities. Finding common ground and building consensus among key stakeholders provides the means necessary to pave the way for deploying these practices. Likewise, obtaining a comprehensive understanding of the landscape within and beyond the boundaries of preserved properties goes a long way towards the holistic stewardship at the watershed level. This session will be discussing the Kiawah Conservancy's efforts to engage with stakeholders in their community to address barriers to coastal resilience by building a consensus on nature-based solutions and developing guidance documents. Additionally, this session will also discuss how we are using geospatial techniques and collaborative efforts to develop implementation strategies within the Kiawah River Watershed.
