Abstract
The South Carolina Forestry Commission (SCFC) and the nonprofit Green Infrastructure Center, Inc. (GIC) collaborated with state, regional, and local governments, and federal and state agencies to create a strategic green infrastructure network and plan for South Carolina. Green Infrastructure (GI) includes all the interconnected natural systems in a landscape such as intact forests, wetlands, bays, dune systems, rivers, and agricultural soils that provide clean water, air quality, wildlife habitat, and food. Planning to conserve or restore GI ensures that communities can be vibrant, healthful, and resilient. Having clean air and water, nature-based recreation, scenic viewsheds, abundant local food and sustainable working lands requires that environmental assets are included as part of community planning.
