A sense of place at risk

Perspectives of residents of coastal Louisiana on nonstructural risk reduction strategies

Residents of coastal Louisiana most at risk of the effects of climate change—such as flooding from severe storms and land loss from sea level rise—need support for nonstructural solutions (such as elevating their homes). However, their voices are rarely included in conversations about nonstructural risk reduction strategies.

As Louisiana moves forward with developing new plans for coastal restoration and mitigation, it’s vital to bring these residents into the planning; they have traditional wisdom, intimate knowledge of the ecosystem, and a deeply rooted “sense of place” that has knitted their communities together for generations.

This report is an important effort to document and present the views of people in the Louisiana parishes who are most at risk.
