Beginning in 2020, the Charleston Medical District (CMD), Climate Adaptation Partners (CAP), and the Carolinas Integrated Sciences Assessment (CISA) team along with many local partners, collaborated on an integrated heat research program, a growing focus across the southeast. In a city where chronic flooding plagues neighborhoods, and where it has always been hot, drawing attention to increases in extreme heat and associated health implications is a relatively new effort and one that requires new types of collaborations in order to be effective. Speakers at this event will share the research results and seek community feedback on ways to better integrate heat risk into local planning and investments.
