Public Education in Coastal Louisiana

Outreach aimed at explaining coastal communities’ current and future flood risks and the benefits of implementing nonstructural programs is needed. Local decision makers should also have greater access to information on the benefits of nonstructural programs and opportunities to obtain funding for nonstructural projects. Such outreach strategies will need to be organized with guidance from local citizens, community groups, and other aligned NGOs to develop more useful and community-specific educational materials.
