The Louisiana Coastal Exchange (LCX), an initiative of the America’s WETLAND Foundation, is an inventory and reporting of private sector coastal restoration projects that have been completed or are planned and available for private investment. In Louisiana, the projects must be consistent with and complementary to the state’s coastal master plan.
The Exchange will show the depth and breadth of restoration efforts beyond those sponsored by government agencies and will be a tangible demonstration of private sector support for restoration. It can serve as a tool for the state, private landowners, foundations, businesses and NGOs to demonstrate the power of partnerships.
To be included in the Exchange, projects must meet the following criteria:
If you have a prospective, completed or coastal project in process that you wish to add to the Exchange, please use this form.
