Combining a fresh perspective with deep Delta roots
The Baird Team is a collection of experts that combines international experience (The Fresh View Team) with deep delta roots and local knowledge (The Delta Team). Members of the Fresh View team bring independent, new perspectives based on a wealth of international experience. Most members have not been involved in previous CPRA or Corps efforts on coastal protection and restoration in Louisiana. The Delta Team features top local experts in the key areas associated with this challenge. Most members have spent years, if not decades, researching and understanding the science of the Delta and its processes.
The Baird Team is complemented by our Navigation Expert Advisory Panel with six top representatives of the Louisiana navigation community, including leaders of the two major ports and leaders of the pilots associations.
We believe that a successful solution must be derived from true teamwork, transparency, realism and innovation. Team members bring their technical expertise to the process and also importantly represent related stakeholder groups.
