About this book

Human impacts and emerging mega-trends such as climate change and energy scarcity will impact natural resource management in this century. This is especially true for deltas because of their ecological and economic importance and their sensitivity to climate change. The Mississippi delta is one of the largest in the world and has been strongly impacted by human activities. Currently there is an ambitious plan for restoration of the delta. Perspectives on the Restoration of the Mississippi Delta, by a renown group of delta experts, provides an overview of the challenges facing the delta and charts – a way forward to sustainable management.
