Project Name: Integrated Ecosystem Restoration and Hurricane Protection:
LA Comprehensive Master Plan for a Sustainable Coast

Baton Rouge, Louisiana

Category: Government

For the first time in Louisiana history, the state has a comprehensive master plan that integrates coastal restoration and hurricane protection for sustaining Louisiana’s Gulf Coast. To develop this plan, the state first created the Coastal Protection & Restoration Authority (CPRA) in December 2005 with authority to articulate a clear statement of priorities and focus development and implementation efforts. In a remarkable 18-month public process, lead by the expertise of the Department of Natural Resources, the Department of Transportation and Development and other state agencies, Louisiana now speaks with one clear voice for the future of Louisiana’s coast.
