Abstract

The document that follows provides an overview of the LA SAFE program developed in six Louisiana parishes facing increased flood risk associated with environmental changes. It then describes the process and products of the LA SAFE effort in Terrebonne Parish specifically. In addition to a vision for the future of the parish—and the goals, strategies, and actions identified to achieve that vision— these chapters also provide information that describes past, present, and likely future conditions in the parish, as well as an in-depth look at the activities and outputs of the community engagement process that has driven the development and prioritization of recommended adaptation strategies. Additional information on the background, research, analysis, planning process and stakeholder engagement involved in the LA SAFE process can be found in the following chapters, as well as in the LA SAFE Regional Adaptation Strategy.
