Start Date: 
United States

In support of the OXFAM Social Impact Assessment of the BP Oil Spill Disaster on Gulf Coast Communities, the Payson Center for International Development and the  Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy (DRLA) will collect and analyze existing baseline social and economic vulnerability of Terrebonne and Plaquemines parishes. In addition, the Tulane Assessment Team led by the Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy (DRLA) in partnership with Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy and the Tulane/Xavier Center for Bioenvironmental Research and other partners will identify and develop a network of community based contacts in the targeted parishes of Terrebonne and Plaquemines; these parishes represent southeast coastal Louisiana communities and those affected by the moratorium and oil spill respectively.
