“Inland from the Coast”, new CSS project funded through National Academies of Sciences and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

BATON ROUGE – LSU researchers lead two of the four projects awarded funding today from the National Academies of Sciences’ Gulf Research Program and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. All four projects aim to enhance the science and practice of resilience in coastal communities located in the Gulf of Mexico region.

LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio Director and Associate Professor in the LSU School of Architecture Jeff Carney leads a multidisciplinary research team that seeks to improve understanding of inland-coastal environmental conditions and vulnerabilities; determine indicators of community health and wellbeing; and develop design and planning best practices for reducing risk and increasing adaptive capacity.
