Green Infrastructure Partnerships Focus on Local Companies

Localized flooding Uptown, New Orleans

Flood Less New Orleans is committed to engaging and mobilizing a variety of constituencies—including low-income communities and communities of color—to persuade the City of New Orleans to strategize and implement new measures that will help New Orleans flood less.

2018 has been a record year for green infrastructure and stormwater management in the Greater New Orleans area. The new city administration is making it a priority to grow the effort.  In fact, the New Orleans Data Center assesses the water economy as potentially one of our fastest growing economic drivers.  How do we grow our workforce and local businesses to serve our water economy needs and lead the world in green infrastructure? We are working with our partner, Launch NOLA  to grow jobs and partner with small family businesses that fill the need. Watch this short video below to find out how.
