Monitoring and Observations
The Louisiana TIG Trustees will develop monitoring and adaptive management approaches for restoration in Louisiana consistent with the Trustee's programmatic restoration plan, the Trustee Council Standard Operating Procedures (SOP), and the Trustee Council Monitoring and Adaptive Management Procedures and Guidelines Manual (MAM Manual). Under this project, the LA TIG Trustees will develop an adaptive management framework and an adaptive management program plan to maximize the success of restoration efforts in Louisiana. The adaptive management framework will help ensure that the Trustees are iteratively incorporating new information into each step of the decision-making process to reduce uncertainty in projects and project types, improve decision-making, and track progress towards restoration goals.
