CHART Director Dr. Monica Farris participated in a United Nations "Making Cities Resilient" Campaign which facilitated knowledge exchange on resilience between experts in New Orleans and Gothenburg.  In the campaign, New Orleans experts first presented ideas to the Swedish delegation in New Orleans, and then visited Gothenburg, where the Swedish experts presented ideas to the New Orleans delegation. Dr. Farris presented on the various CHART projects that contribute to the resilience of the New Orleans region. The Making Cities Resilient website describes the project in more detail, and Dr. Farris' presentation can be found under day three of the New Orleans visit.
