Dr. Narendra P. Sharma, director of community outreach for the University of South Carolina Beaufort, who organized the series, said the pressure of meeting new demands for land, water and energy to accommodate increasing populations forces governments to make quick decisions, often without considering long-term environmental harm.
"Economic considerations often prevail over environmental concerns," said Sharma, an economist who spent 32 years working for the World Bank.
It's important that officials at the local, state and national level consider the environmental effects of economic development before signing off on projects that change the composition of communities, he said.
Paving over wetlands, bulldozing vast swaths of forest, and overpumping aquifers to accommodate industrial and residential development have long-term negative effects on the natural environment and threaten to destroy the integrity of ecosystem, Sharma said.
"Here in the Lowcountry, we have great opportunity to address this issue now and have a broader dialogue before it's too late," he said.
