Release of the City of New Orleans Resilience Strategy
Tuesday, August 25, 2105, 11:00am
For almost three centuries, New Orleans has faced many challenges. With our culture of creativity and innovation, the city has emerged stronger and more resilient each time. Today, there are new challenges that confront the region – climate change and rising sea levels, land subsidence and coastal erosion, and lack of equity and opportunity for all New Orleanians to grow and thrive.
As part of 100 Resilient Cities, powered by the Rockefeller Foundation, the City of New Orleans will release its first ever Resilience Strategy, with an aim of becoming a global leader in urban resilience. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate will also be in attendance.
