LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio

The mission of the Louisiana State University (LSU) Coastal Sustainability Studio (CSS), founded in 2009, is to address the challenge of sustaining the ecological, settlement, and economic framework of the Gulf coast. The CSS approach centers on supporting resilient human communities in the dynamic Gulf of Mexico environment - working to design sustainable systems that reduce vulnerability to increased storm strength, coastal hazards, habitat degradation, and global environmental change. CSS was conceived as a laboratory to develop new strategies that reduce risk to social, economic, and natural resources, in order to provide a sound basis for major policy decisions for adaptation through more sustainable land-use planning, protection, and education.
