2021 State of the Coast Conference

The State of the Coast (SOC) Conference is the largest statewide conference of its kind, providing an interdisciplinary forum to exchange timely and relevant information on the dynamic conditions of Louisiana’s coastal communities, environment, and economy. The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL), The Water Institute of the Gulf, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) and Louisiana Sea Grant have partnered to produce this forum, the need for which grows with every acre of land lost to the Gulf of Mexico.

SOC2021 consisted of three days of virtual presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions, and networking opportunities. More than 1,200 scientists, landowners/managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users, and interested citizens attended the sixth iteration of this biennial conference.
