our current coastal crisis
Our Current Coastal Crisis
  • Current and future protection and restoration projects should progress with the same sense of urgency and compressed timelines as was seen in the Greater New Orleans HSDRRS.
  • Recommend adoption of the same timelines and level of detail used on the “LCA 6” for all feasibility studies.
  • Acknowledge that Coastal Louisiana is in a catastrophic state of system collapse and that requiring individual projects to be sustainable in perpetuity is an untenable policy.

  • Reduce economic losses from storm-based flooding
  • Promote a sustainable coastal ecosystem by harnessing natural system processes
  • Provide habitats suitable to support an array of commercial and recreational activities coast-wide
  • Sustain Louisiana’s unique heritage and culture

A sustainable future

Future without action

?

  • Severe land loss
  • Increasing hurricane flood risk
  • Loss of ecosystem services
  • Loss of cultural heritage
  • Reactive expenditures
  • Sustainable coastline & ecosystems
  • Resilient communities and assets
  • Long-term cost savings through strategic investments

How do we get there?

What should we do now?

How can we adapt to evolving uncertainties and improved information?

What tradeoffs remain?
