Restoring the Gulf after Deepwater Horizon: Perspective from the Front Lines
Join the NASEM Gulf Research Program for a Gulf Research Program webinar focused on restoration efforts in the Gulf of Mexico region.
Gulf Oil Spill settlements entrusted approximately $16 billion to federal and state authorities to restore ecosystems affected by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and to enhance the Gulf region’s resilience against future disasters. During the webinar, leaders engaged in implementing this historic effort will provide their perspectives on how restoration and resilience projects are being designed and implemented, and what lies ahead. Panelists will discuss how needs are being identified, projects funded, their progress evaluated, and relevant data shared. They will share early insights on best practices and lessons learned.
