This chapter argues that local residents should be involved in Louisiana coast's restoration effort. It explains that community involvement is an important factor in restoring Louisiana's coastal regions because most projects that rely on bureaucracy and mechanized restoration tend to be unsustainable. It adds that community involvement holds more weight than academic or policy recommendations, because the community intimately know what the Louisiana coast once was and are able to give a more concrete view of any proposed restoration effort.

Keywords:   restoration, community involvement, bureaucracy, Louisiana coast, policy recommendations
