Louisiana Adaptive Management Status and Improvement Report: Vision and Recommendations

In developing the vision and recommendations for implementation of adaptive management, the Institute gathered experts in adaptive management from the Everglades, Chesapeake Bay, Platte River, and Columbia River to start off with lessons learned from other large ecosystem management programs that have also used adaptive management. In addition, the Institute brought together multiple representatives from the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, Department of the Interior, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Environmental Protection Agency, United States Department of Agriculture, and Louisiana State University. These groups helped pull together federal and state coastal restoration processes in order to come up eight priority recommended actions to improve adaptive management for coastal restoration work in Louisiana.
