Composed of ten parishes with over 1 million residents, Greater New Orleans Inc, or GNO Inc. for short, is southeast Louisiana’s economic development organization. Given the importance of water to the region’s culture and economy, in 2010 the state of Louisiana provided funding to GNO Inc. to develop the Greater New Orleans Urban Water Plan. The Urban Water Plan represents a region-wide effort to explore and invest in smart and sustainable water-related infrastructure.
Robin Barnes, Executive Vice President and COO of Greater New Orleans Inc., joins the podcast to discuss the Urban Water Plan and explain its implications for the Southeast Louisiana region.
This podcast includes music by Latch Swing, Digital Primitives, Christian Bjoerklund, and Chris Zabriskie.
