Statewide survey results released today by the America's WETLAND Foundation (AWF) show a majority of Texans are worried about the future of the Texas coast as an economic engine driven by a healthy ecosystem.
Participants at DELTAS2013VIETNAM, an international dialogue sponsored by the America's WETLAND Foundation of Louisiana, Viet Nam National University and the government of the Netherlands, approved a Communiqué of Cooperation on May 23, 2013, affirming the need for cooperation among peoples to save the world's great deltas.
The America's WETLAND Foundation released "Beyond Unintended Consequences: Adaptation for Gulf Coast Resiliency and Sustainability," that offers 30 recommendations for Gulf Coast sustainability based on research and testimony from a series of leadership forums held in 11 communities from Texas to Florida during a 14-month period in 2011 and 2012.
The America's WETLAND Foundation provided comments in response to the Preliminary Gulf of Mexico Regional Ecosystem Restoration Strategy Report.
AWF/Entergy Study: Building a Resilient Gulf Coast
Mitigation and adaptation measures critical to avoiding economic and human suffering. This study shows communities along the Gulf Coast could suffer more than $350 billion in economic losses over the next 20 years due to growing environmental risks.
DELTAS2010 brought together a select delegation representing governments, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and the science and engineering community from across the globe, along with local and regional authorities on the world's great deltas.
Following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010, America's Energy Coast and its partners issued this report. The Secure Gulf Project report is the culmination of ideas to sustain one of the world's most prolific ecosystems and its economic and natural resource benefits to the U.S.A REGION AT RISK: Preventing the Loss of Vital National Assets.
A region at risk calls for a regional approach to coastal restoration, ending conflicting federal regulations and accelerating federal sharing of offshore oil revenues.
A new national poll shows 91 percent of Americans believe the Gulf Coast is vital to the nation's economy and domestic energy security, and the U.S. should invest additional funds in restoring the area.
As an organization built around public awareness for protecting and restoring Louisiana's Gulf Coast, the AWF Progress Report delivers a descriptive and captivating story of the Foundation's remarkable strides from 2002-2009 in raising awareness about wetlands conservation and restoration.
This document shows the results of a Gulf Coast region poll conducted in September 2010 to measure the public's reaction to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and to determine the negative effects of the spill on the perceptions of Gulf Coast residents.
In April 2006, a technical group of more than 30 scientists and engineers participated in a symposium entitled "Envisioning the Future of the Gulf Coast." The group, which included experts in geology, ecology, oceanography, engineering and economics, came from across the United States and as far as Italy, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Egypt and Australia. For a week in April, this group toured the coast, learned about its environmental and economic importance, shared perspectives and developed their own recommendations. The resulting report is a consensus statement of the entire group.
This is a preliminary findings report based on the America's WETLAND Summit Series which was held in 2003 and 2004.
