The Governors’ Action Plan is intended to be a dynamic starting point for effective regional collaboration, setting the stage for a long-term partnership that can address an expanded suite of issues, culminating in a healthier Gulf of Mexico ecosystem and economy. See the implementation updates to stay informed on the progress.

In the wake of the devastating 2005 hurricane season, the Governors’ Action Plan strongly emphasizes actions within these five priorities that support Gulf Coast recovery and rebuilding efforts, and that work to mitigate environmental impacts and economic disruptions from future hurricanes and other coastal hazards.
