Abstract

In August 2005 the flood protection system around the city of New Orleans in the United States failed, and Hurricane Katrina flooded 80% of the city. More than 130,000 homes were destroyed, and despite many people returning to the city and renewed development, many properties are still abandoned due to the massive flooding that took place. More than a decade later, the city and its residents are still dealing with the stormís aftermath and searching for integrated solutions to flooding risk.
