What progress has been made in developing techniques and approaches for reducing the impacts of activities conducted in wetlands or compensating for such impacts through wetland restoration or creation. One hundred and fifty-five speakers and panelists and an additional 370 attendees met over a 3 day period in New Orleans to address this question. The papers in the proceedings are the first comprehensive attempt to examine 'mitigation' since an initial mitigation symposium in 1977. The speakers were asked to focus on two principal questions: What has been learned concerning the effectiveness of various impact reduction and restoration/creation techniques; and How could these techniques be strengthened or improved and what are the research needs.
