SOC2023 post-event resources are live!


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, The Water Institute and the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) have partnered to produce this forum, the need for which grows with every acre of land lost to the Gulf.  


SOC2021 consisted of virtual presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions, and networking opportunities.

More than 1,000 scientists, landowners/managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users and interested residents attended the sixth iteration of this biennial conference.
