New Orleans, Louisiana
New Orleans is a consolidated city-parish located along the Mississippi River in the southeastern region of the U.S. state of Louisiana. A major port, New Orleans is considered an economic and commercial hub for the broader Gulf Coast region of the United States. New Orleans is world-renowned for its distinct music, Creole cuisine, unique dialect, and its annual celebrations and festivals, most notably Mardi Gras. The historic heart of the city is the French Quarter, known for its French and Spanish Creole architecture and vibrant nightlife along Bourbon Street.
Founded in 1718 by French colonists, New Orleans was once the territorial capital of French Louisiana before being traded to the United States in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803. The city's location and low elevation have historically made it very vulnerable to flooding, leading to the installation of a complex system of levees and drainage pumps.
The city and parish are bounded by St. Tammany Parish and Lake Pontchartrain to the north, St. Bernard Parish and Lake Borgne to the east, Plaquemines Parish to the south, and Jefferson Parish to the south and west. The city anchors the larger New Orleans metropolitan area.
New Orleans has a healthy sustainability governance system in place. Using the city's resilience strategy, Resilient New Orleans, as a guide, the Office of Resilience and Sustainability (ORS) works with other city departments and agencies to advise on the strategic pursuit of comprehensive resilience priorities across environmental, social, economic, and infrastructural improvement goals. ORS also leads the outreach efforts associated with resilience-building projects and the management of the projects associated with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development – National Disaster Resilience Competition award. Above all, ORS leads the strategic combination of efforts to achieve multiple benefits for public, private, and nonprofit initiatives in New Orleans. Learn more about NOLA's green programs.
