In mid-October, UNO-CHART Director Dr. Monica Farris and Assistant Director Dr. Tara Lambeth participated in the Global Transformation Convening at the Rockefeller Foundation Bellagio Center in northern Italy. UNO-CHART and the Foundation for Louisiana were awarded a $1 million grant to create a three-part series of roundtable discussions designed to build a portfolio of best practices to address global climate change. Concordia LLC, a local firm that designs and plans community engagement throughout Louisiana, will help develop the series. The grants were awarded by the Rockefeller Foundation, which aims to promote the well-being of humanity throughout the world. The first session was held March 14-15 in Buras, a small community about an hour south of New Orleans that is on the frontlines of coastal change, and the second session was held in Bellagio, Italy. Using the LA SAFE project as a foundation (lasafe.la.gov), this series connects local to global adaptive strategies through many levels of governance, and with a variety of voices, to enhance our collective understanding of how to plan for and adapt to climate change, with equity as a central consideration.
