North Carolina Forever hosted the first in a series of educational webinars about issues facing our state’s lands and waters. “Building Resiliency in North Carolina,” took place from 4-5PM on May 20. Our panel discussed the increasing frequency of flooding events, which affects North Carolina’s inland and coastal communities alike. They explored what this means for the state as well as the efforts underway to increase our resiliency.
The webinar was moderated by Environmental Defense Fund’s Will McDow who leads the development and implementation of EDF’s Landscape Resilience Initiative. Panelists include State Senate Majority Whip Senator Jim Perry, and Dr. Jess Whitehead, Executive Director of the Institute for Coastal Adaptation and Resilience (ICAR) at Old Dominion University.
