Habitat Resources Team

Team Chair
James Pahl, Louisiana Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority  

The Gulf of Mexico Alliance Habitat Resources Team will focus its actions on developing tools and data regarding habitat assessment, living shorelines, sediment management and sea level rise. This team will also take the lead on the Comprehensive Restoration and Resilience Planning and the Ecosystem Services Assessment Cross-Team Initiatives.

Team Goals: increase the availability and utilization of habitat assessment data and information to coastal stakeholders; increase awareness and implementation of living shoreline alternatives in coastal communities; support the development of robust regional sediment management and beneficial use programs at the local, state, and regional scale; and promote understanding of the capabilities and uses of sea level rise and storm surge models.
