Abstract

This paper looks at the positioning of climate policy, particularly climate change adaptation (CCA), as part of the burgeoning resilience policy of New Orleans, Louisiana. In contrast to the other papers in this special issue this contribution is forward looking and in the limited space attempts to coalesce the lessons from Katrina with managing Social-Ecological Systems in an uncertain future affected by climate change. The contribution from New Orleans can provide some insights as to the complementary nature of climate policy and resilience while galvanising the city against future extreme events.
