"The discussion considered what lessons we can learn about environmental governance and how we can apply those lessons moving forward. We also considered land use and planning post-Katrina and post-Rita; how recovery should work across federal, state, local, private, and non-profit organizations. Our discussants suggested energetic, heartfelt, and intelligent approaches to rebuilding our Gulf Coast in a sensible, environmentally sound manner."
