Louisiana Coastal Adaptation Toolkit

Author(s): Craig Colten

The Louisiana Coastal Adaptation Toolkit, co-authored by Craig E. Colten and Garrett C. Wolf, is designed as a general reference that provides resources to individuals and communities that can help them adapt to myriad challenges present in coastal Louisiana. Underpinned by a process of understanding challenges and implementing solutions, the toolkit highlights options for adaptations in various aspects of community life, and provides guidance on how to use particular policy strategies or work with both the built and natural environments to foster safety and resilience. These adaptations are organized according to the types of challenges they address, from hurricanes and flooding to sea-level rise and subsidence.
