Fourth Governors’ Action Plan for Healthy and Resilient Coasts Announced


The Gulf Of Mexico Alliance has recently released the fourth iteration of the Governors’ Action Plan for Healthy and Resilient Coasts.

The plan aims to identify and prioritize areas of economic and environmental importance in the Gulf of Mexico. This is the fourth iteration of the governors’ plan, and the current one was recently signed by the governors of Texas, Florida, Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi.

This time around, the plan includes multiple aspects to improve community resilience in the five states, including enhancing the management of coastal habitats, improving and increasing data sharing, and improving the management of wildlife species.

Commenting on the new plan, Laura Bowie, the executive director of the Gulf of Mexico Alliance, stated:

“Over the last 17 years, the Alliance has built a reputation for fostering collaborative relationships that lead to positive change. Support from the governors of the five Gulf states demonstrates their continued commitment to working across the region on issues of shared importance.”
