Overview of Selected Parishes’ Freeboard, Fill, and Open Space Rules and Projects within Louisiana’s Region Seven Watershed

N/A

As coastal erosion and the threat of major hurricanes and other flooding events continue to threaten Louisiana, parishes have begun to adopt jurisdiction-specific approaches to mitigating those risks. The establishment of freeboard requirements, no-net fill practices, and the incorporation of green stormwater infrastructure (GSI), such as open spaces and native vegetation, are three major ways to prepare for and mitigate flooding.

Neighborhoods at Risk Tool

Neighborhoods at Risk is a free, online data tool that provides users with information about neighborhoods across the U. S. that are facing climate change risks. In particular, the tool displays which communities “may experience unequal impacts from hurricanes, flooding, and extreme heat. ” Neighborhoods at Risk’s data is regularly updated and is an easy way to see what the top vulnerabilities are for any community with data about people and climate exposure. The tool can enable policymakers, community leaders, and others to make more comprehensive and well-rounded decisions with equity, local context, and people in mind.

2022 California Climate Adaptation Strategy

April 4, 2022

The 2022 California Climate Adaptation Strategy presents six state priorities and relevant actions to increase climate resilience at the state, regional, and local levels. The 2022 Strategy updates the conclusions and innovations put forth in California’s 2021 Climate Adaptation Strategy in an interactive website. The 2022 Strategy includes the six outcome-based priorities outlined in the 2021 Strategy and clearly explains the goals and actions that must be taken to achieve each of those priorities. Decisionmakers can incorporate California’s metrics into adaptation and resilience indicators in their own state, regional, and local plans or use the Strategy as a model to develop their own.

National Fish and Wildlife Foundation: National Coastal Resilience Fund 2022 Request for Proposals

March 21, 2022

On March 21, 2022, the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) announced the 2022 National Coastal Resilience Fund (NCRF) Request for Proposals (RFP). The NFWF will provide approximately $140 million in grants to protect communities from current and future coastal threats and improve habitats for fish and wildlife species. Natural habitats, such as coastal wetlands, marshes, and dunes can protect communities from the impacts of sea-level rise, new flood patterns, and more frequent and intense storms. As such, NFWF seeks to fund projects that use natural resource restoration to enhance coastal resilience and wildlife habitats. 

Eligible applicants include nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, educational institutions, and commercial organizations. Pre-proposals are due Thursday, April 21, 2022, by 11:59 P.M. ET and final proposals are due Thursday, June 30, 2022, by 11:59 P.M. ET. The NCRF is a public-private partnership between NFWF, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), Occidental, Shell USA, Inc., TransRE, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the Bezos Earth Fund.

Louisiana Climate Action Plan

February 1, 2022

On February 1, 2022, Louisiana’s Climate Initiatives Task Force released the state’s first Climate Action Plan. In the plan, the task force notes that “Louisiana is among the most vulnerable states in the United States to the impacts of climate change” and poor air quality, repetitive flooding events, and extreme heat are impacting the state’s ability to be resilient. Although the Climate Action Plan is primarily intended to guide climate mitigation efforts in Louisiana, the task force recommends 28 strategies and 84 actions the state can take to both reduce greenhouse gas emissions and build resilience to the impacts of climate change.

Cities Advancing Climate Action: Leveraging Federal Funds for Local Impact A Resource Guide

January 2022

In January 2022, the U. S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) and the Center for Climate and Energy Solutions (C2ES) released Cities Advancing Climate Action: Leveraging Funds for Local Impact, a resource guide of municipal case studies. Following the passing of the American Rescue Plan and the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA) in 2021, USCM and C2ES compiled these case studies that provide guidance to cities on how they can utilize funding from these laws to promote resilience. USCM and C2ES assert that “cities have been at the center of advancing climate and resilience priorities for communities for decades” and the influx of funding is an opportunity for cities to make “impactful action against climate change and structural inequality.
