Adapting to Uncertainty: Implementing Resilience in Times of Change

The challenge of living with water is one shared by deltaic communities around the world. Nowhere is this more apparent than in post-Katrina New Orleans and the Gulf Coast region, where people live with a daily awareness of the threat, and opportunities, of water. The series of Building Resilience Workshops (BRW) I, II, III, and IV have been organized with the goals of identifying and fostering the implementation of innovative and sustainable strategies to reduce New Orleans’ and South Louisiana’s vulnerability to potentially catastrophic hazards, both natural and man-made, particularly those resulting in severe flooding.
