CRCL advocates for policies at the local, state, and federal level to protect and restore coastal Louisiana.
Louisiana is losing coastal wetlands at an alarming rate, a football field of land every 100 minutes. To combat this significant coastal land loss, the state of Louisiana creates a Coastal Master Plan for restoration and flood protection every six years.
The Coastal Master Plan is a guiding document for the State that dictates future restoration plans. The Coastal Master Plan process is based on science to ensure that the projects that will do the most good are the ones prioritized for investment. This approach is critical to success. CRCL supports this process and highlights a selection of Coastal Master Plan projects as critical projects for Louisiana.
