Louisiana Speaks Case Study Presentation

Arup logoPlanners use scenarios to present alternative futures to communities as part of the general planning process.  Living with, and examining options for reducing, the risks associated with various hazards should be presented as part of these choices for the future.

This presentation was prepared by Mark Shorett, an urban planner with Arup.
