Louisiana Coastal Hazard Mitigation Guidebook

Image: Louisiana Coastal Hazard Mitigation Guidebook cover.The Louisiana Coastal Hazard Mitigation Guidebook outlines strategies to reduce, but not eliminate, the risks from coastal natural hazards such as storm surge, other flooding, subsidence and sea level rise, and approaches that are designed to serve as an extra layer of protection or an additional line of defense from those hazards. The guidebook also demonstrates how communities can adopt a flexible approach to hazard planning and accommodate a wide range of attitudes toward restrictions on the use of property to mitigate hazards.
