"Walking the walk: Lessons from 10 years in the world of Louisiana climate change policy"

SIERRA CLUB NEW ORLEANS GROUP, TULANE GREEN CLUB, and the League of Women Voters of New Orleans PRESENT: AN EVENING WITH WRITER AMY CLIPP (Louisiana Coastal Master Plan) 

Speaker for April 9th is Amy Clipp, who worked on the first draft of the Coastal Master Plan. The Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority will present the next 50 year master plan to the Louisiana Legislature next month, and the Legislature must vote up or down on the plan. The plan projects that if the state takes no action, more than 4,000 square mile of coastal land could be lost over the next half century.  The researchers concluded that New Orleans’ infrastructure would be the hardest hit in the state, losing approximately $1.7 billion in public structures such as roads, ports, and buildings.

SUNDAY, APRIL 9TH, at 7:00 pm. Doors Open 6:30
Richardson Memorial Hall, Tulane Architecture School, RM 204.
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC (parking areas are Cowen Circle, St Charles Ave., and Engineer Road, running from Freret St to the side of the Architecture School building)
