Why the Space You Occupy Matters and How to Protect It: Lessons from Katrina and Adapting to Living with Water Today

Event: Annual Conference - DRI2024

Author: Nicole Boothman-Shepard, Lona Edwards Hankins

When Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans, over 400 of the City’s almost 500 school facilities were damaged, over half catastrophically. We will walk through keys lessons from the $2B schools recovery program that shaped equitable and resilient rebuilding and brought back public education to 48,000 students and then pivot to resilience and climate adaptation strategies in New Orleans today. Our session will include clear and simple recommendations on how to assess your facility portfolio risks and implement near-term and long-term solutions that will protect your people and business enterprise in the face of major shocks and slow-onset hazards like climate change.
