The Resilient New Orleans plan, adopted in 2015, presents an example of how cities can use planning to address equity and water resilience. More than a decade after Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans still faces combined threats from severe storms, sea-level rise, subsidence, aging infrastructure and economic inequality. The report is framed with equity at the forefront, acknowledging the disparate impacts of flooding and extreme weather on communities of color. The plan presents the city’s vision for enhancing resilience to climate impacts and other stressors and includes a detailed focus on green infrastructure and other nature-based approaches to enhancing resilience. The plan recommends that the city utilize local vegetation to promote more effective soil drainage, transition vacant lots into rain gardens to collect and detain water from heavy rainfall events, incorporate green infrastructure in city redevelopment projects, create training for jobs in green infrastructure installation, and support workshops and trainings to facilitate small-scale green infrastructure projects on homes and businesses.
