    Adaptation For Gulf Coast Resiliency & Sustainability Forum

    The Adaptation For Gulf Coast Resiliency & Sustainability Forum was held on October 28-29, 2014 in Jefferson Island and Avery Island, LA. The forum was attended by a high level group of key interests to discuss advancing coastal ecosystem services valuing. Through this effort we hope to encourage private sector investment in restoration, create incentives for land building, and incorporate ecosystem services values into cost-benefit analyses that presently fail to account for social and economic risks and costs of disappearing coastal landscapes.
