Reconstruction of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina: a research perspective


Reconstruction of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina: a research perspective



Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America 103(40): 14653-14660

Four propositions drawn from 60 years of natural hazard and reconstruction research provide a comparative and historical perspective on the reconstruction of New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina. Decisions taken over its 288-year history that have made New Orleans so vulnerable to Katrina reflect a long-term pattern of societal response to hazard events--reducing consequences to relatively frequent events, and increasing vulnerability to very large and rare events.
