Gulf of Mexico Alliance - Governors’ Action Plan III For Healthy and Resilient Coasts (2016-2021)

June 2016

The Governors’ Action Plan III for Healthy and Resilient Coasts is the third report in a series of action plans from the Gulf of Mexico Alliance that addresses issues common to all Gulf States. This report is a five-year plan for six regional priorities including Coastal Resilience, Data and Monitoring, Education and Engagement, Habitat Resources, Water Resources, and Wildlife and Fisheries. The Gulf of Mexico Alliance is a cooperative partnership of the five U. S. Gulf States (Alabama, Florida, Louisiana, Mississippi, Texas), federal agencies, academic organizations, businesses, and other non-governmental organizations.

City of Waveland, Mississippi Local Hazard Mitigation Plan

March 2013

The City of Waveland, Mississippi developed this Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) 2013 update to document Waveland’s hazard mitigation planning process, and to identify relevant vulnerabilities and strategies the City will use to increase resiliency and sustainability. Waveland was "ground zero" of Hurricane Katrina's landfall on August 29, 2005. The city received massive damage and is still in the process of recovering and rebuilding.

Waveland, Mississippi Local Hazard Mitigation Plan Update – Critical Evacuation Routes

March 2013

The City of Waveland, Mississippi developed its Local Hazard Mitigation Plan (LHMP) in 2013 to update its 2007 plan, document the city’s hazard mitigation planning process, and identify relevant vulnerabilities and strategies to increase resiliency. The 2013 LHMP added climate change as a new hazard not previously addressed, as well as several other climate-related hazards such as coastal erosion, drought, extreme heat, and flooding. The LHMP assesses Waveland’s vulnerability to the hazards identified, as well as its hazard mitigation capabilities, and identifies evacuation planning as a high priority action item in light of the vulnerabilities identified.

Impacts and Adaptation Options in the Gulf Coast

June 2012

This report from the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) reviews observed and projected changes for the Gulf Coast regional climate hazards, as well as potential impacts and adaptation options. It specifically details the impacts from sea level rise, wetland loss and hurricanes, and further examines the risks that climate change poses to the region’s energy and fishing industries. The report concludes that climate impacts are already occurring across these sectors, and outlines adaptation measures that can be implemented, while reducing the region’s vulnerability and the costs associated with future impacts.
