Integrating Social Science and Gulf Coast Restoration
Findings from a social science workshop at the University of New Orleans.
How can we more effectively restore Gulf Coast ecosystems and human communities? In an effort to answer this question, 55 scholars and practitioners convened at the University of New Orleans in July, 2013. They formed an Integrating Social Science Team (ISS Team), and spent a long day in conversations about coastal residents’ needs, knowledge and concerns—and how best to address those concerns in sound restoration projects.
