Formatted abstract
Vulnerability of coastal areas is not just defined by natural perturbations but includes the degree of ecosystem degradation, community design and the socio-economic composition of the community. Increased degradation of coastal ecosystems and
population growth has meant that hurricanes, tsunamis and other natural disasters have taken an increasing human and environmental toll worldwide. Hurricane Katrina dramatically exposed the lack of overall system resilience in Louisiana. Increasing resilience of the system necessitates an inclusive view of both socioeconomic and
ecological factors. Alicia Hope Herron, David Neil and Marc Hockings highlight the importance of considering coastal management as a social-ecological system, using the situational analysis of Louisiana and Hurricane Katrina to show that resilience is inextricably tied to these linkages.
