Integrated Planning Team

Integrated Planning Team

Gulf Coast communities are deeply shaped by a sense of place. While the built and natural environment are interdependent, planning activities have rarely been connected.

The Gulf of Mexico Alliance Integrated Planning Cross-Team Initiative supports the implementation of adaptation, conservation, and resilience activities at the local community and regional scale. The Cross-Team also provides data and modeling for drivers that influence the built and natural environments such as sea-level rise, climate, population growth, and land-use change.
