South Louisiana’s culture―including its working coast―is central to the future of the entire state as well as the nation’s economy. This project seeks to better characterize the communities of south Louisiana and their needs to enable better planning and consideration of local input in statewide decisions. The Water Institute is also developing a framework for a climate adaptation plan, building on work conducted elsewhere to ensure Louisiana’s coastal communities are prepared for the future.
