This is your shield, this is your estuary booklet
Building resilience is key to the future sustainability of Louisiana's coasts.
New synthesis booklet for coastal Louisiana released
A 48-page synthesis booklet titled "This is your shield...this is your estuary" was produced by The Water Institute of the Gulf and IAN. This effort integrated scientific and traditional knowledge, capturing issues that arose in a series of community workshops in coastal Louisiana. This synthesis addresses the issue of building community and coastal resilience to a changing Louisiana coastline through restoration of key ecosystem functions. Since coastal communities of Louisiana are highly vulnerable to coastal change, building resilience is key for their future sustainability.

The Integration & Application Network is an initiative of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
