Coast and Climate 101 Meeting coming to North Louisiana

January 31, 2023

BATON ROUGE, La. – North Louisiana residents have an opportunity to learn about two of the biggest issues affecting the state’s future at an upcoming meeting in Shreveport.

Join leaders from the Governor’s Climate Initiatives Task Force, the Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, and high-profile stakeholders from outside of government to learn more about the protection and restoration of the coast and the global energy transition.

This event will provide updates on the state’s 4th comprehensive coastal master plan and its vision for the future of coastal Louisiana and updates on impressive large-scale ecosystem restoration projects; and highlight projects and initiatives that support the implementation of the Climate Action Plan like the advent of renewable energy projects, the plugging of orphaned wells, electric cars and school buses, Louisiana Outdoors Forever (the state’s new conservation matching program), and the growth of the hydrogen economy.

The Coastal Master Plan outlines our state’s priorities for combating land loss and protecting ourselves from future storm damage, and the Climate Action Plan contains recommendations that could potentially set Louisiana on a path to meeting the goal of net zero emissions of greenhouse gases by 2050.

Representatives from Restore the Mississippi River Delta and the Governor’s Office of Coastal Activities are hosting the meeting at the Port of Caddo-Bossier on Thursday, February 2 at 11:00 a.m. where they will provide information about the two plans and an open dialogue about Louisiana’s future.
