Louisiana’s Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast: 2012 Update


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.




Uses original 2007 master plan science based objectives as foundation

  • 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

    ?

    • 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?
