Silver Jackets: Many Partners, One team


Many Partners, One Team


Georgia Coastal Resilience Workshop

The Georgia Coastal Resilience Workshop covered subjects such as sea level rise, economic risk assessment, stormwater adaptation, coastal flooding data trends, FEMA flood map updates, and nature-based solutions, amongst others. Through shared instruction, the workshop successfully communicated how these tools can be used to assess, communicate, and address risk to Georgia communities posed by coastal storms and sea level rise.

Our collaborative partners and presenters included USACE (SAS, SAJ, ERDC), Georgia Emergency Management, Georgia Department of Natural Resources, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, The Nature Conservancy, and the University of Georgia.

On 31 Aug - 1 Sep 22, the Georgia Silver Jackets Team hosted a two-day virtual coastal resilience workshop focused on providing coastal practitioners and emergency managers with hands-on training on coastal resilience related tools developed by state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations, and academia.  

The workshop was well received by the attendees, which represented many of Georgia’s coastal communities, including Camden, Chatham, Effingham Glynn and Mcintosh Counties.
