This chapter reflects on what needs to be done by Louisiana coast residents in order to adapt to the gradual saltwater incursion. It suggests that residents should construct elevated and hardened homes to combat the land vulnerability. This chapter further suggests that a campground or a retreat facility should be built or leased, in order to provide a unified evacuation plan.
