Post-Katrina Housing Resilience in Greater New Orleans

/ Webinar

Hosted By:
Joint Center for Housing Studies

Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath exposed stark socioeconomic inequities in greater New Orleans. It also spurred historic public spending for post-disaster aid and protective infrastructure. But little is known about whether this spending improved the ability of households to withstand and recover from future natural disasters. 

Carlos Martín and Claudia Solari, co-authors of a new report about housing resilience in post-Katrina Louisiana, will discuss the effects of both community-level interventions and homeowner behavior.
