The flooding on August 5, 2017, shone a bright light on New Orleans’ environmental and infrastructural vulnerabilities when it comes to flood risk, and the need for well-informed leadership on storm water management. To that end, the Urban Conservancy is partnering with the Greater New Orleans Foundation to host a mayoral forum on “Flood Risk and Environmental Adaptation.”

The moderated forum will give candidates the opportunity to answer questions on issues pertaining to New Orleans’ role in Louisiana’s coastal land loss crisis and restoration efforts, the City’s flood protection and the future of living with water, and the City’s role in committing to climate change adaptation and the principles delineated in the Paris Climate Accord.

All candidates were invited to participate, and the following have confirmed their participation by submitting bios and personal statements on the issue by the deadline: Michael Bagneris, Ed Bruski, LaToya Cantrell, Desiree Charbonnet, Brandon Dorrington, Troy Henry, Matthew Hill, and Johnese Smith.

Sponsors include the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, The Lens, the Tulane Institute on Water Resources Law & Policy, the Tulane ByWater Institute, the Gulf Restoration Network, and the Lowlander Center and the Water Collaborative of Greater New Orleans.

The Mayoral Forum on Flood Risk and Environmental Adaptation is hosted by the Urban Conservancy and will be held on the evening of Thursday September 14th from 5:30-7pm at the New Orleans Jazz Market, 1436 Oretha Castle Haley Boulevard. The Forum is open to the public. Doors open at 5:00pm. The Forum will also be streamed live at,, and and will be rebroadcast at 5pm on Friday, September 15 on
