Louisiana Adaptive Management Status and Improvement Report: Vision and Recommendations

Mar 20, 2020

This report presents a consensus-based common vision for adaptive management of coastal restoration implementation in Louisiana. As Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority (CPRA) is the primary agency responsible for coordinating and facilitating coastal restoration projects within the state of Louisiana, the primary source of information and experience was collated from personnel and processes carried out at CPRA. To capture needs and mechanisms across agencies, extensive input was also received from the Louisiana Trustee Implementation Group (LA TIG), representing the other state and federal Trustees. The recommendations we developed here provide a road map towards the desired state of governance for adaptive management in coastal Louisiana. The full report can also be accessed through CPRA at https://cims.coastal.louisiana.gov/RecordDetail.aspx?Root=0&sid=23922 or through DIVER under the project's "documents" tab https://www.gulfspillrestoration.noaa.gov/project?id=121.
