The City of New Orleans

Mayor Mitchell J. Landrieu


The City of New Orleans, with 100 Resilient Cities - Pioneered by The Rockefeller Foundation as an invaluable partner, seeks to be a global model of city resilience as we enter our fourth century in 2018.

In August 2015, the City of New Orleans, led by the City’s first Chief Resilience Officer, Jeff Hebert, released one of the world's first comprehensive strategies for building city resilience. Resilient New Orleans builds on more than 10 years of planning and visioning for our city and leverages the work we are already doing, while proposing bold strategies with committed partnerships to move from recovery to resilience for the next 300 years.

The City of New Orleans, led by the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority, is also eligible and applying for up to $500 million in funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s National Disaster Resilience Competition (NDRC). We’re coordinating our efforts as part of our first official resilience project to develop the best application for our city and further the goals of Resilient New Orleans.

"As part of 100 Resilient Cities, New Orleans has both showcased and deepened our ability to successfully rebound after natural and manmade disasters. Through this collaboration, I am confident that New Orleans will become the global model for resilience by our city's 300th anniversary in 2018, building resilience across all sectors and identifying the best approaches to our city's inherited natural challenges."
