GNO: New Advocates for Louisiana Restoration Programs (USA)

Greater New Orleans, Inc. announced the launch of the Coalition for Coastal Resilience and Economy (CCRE). CCRE is a business led coalition that will create an educated, informed voice of advocacy for sustainable restoration efforts in Louisiana’s wetlands, rivers, deltas, and coastline.

Water is the existential issue for Southeast Louisiana,” said Michael Hecht, President & CEO of Greater New Orleans, Inc. “Our region has a take-it-or-leave-it opportunity to make strategic investments in the environment today that will ensure continued economic growth and opportunity tomorrow, and CCRE will help ensure this happens.”

Partnerships such as these allow the state to engage business interests and other stakeholders so that we can work together to achieve our goals of restoring and protecting this valuable resource, coastal Louisiana,” said Jerome Zeringue, Executive Director of the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority.

“The business community is critical to advancing coastal restoration, and the Walton Family Foundation is proud to support the CCRE as part of the growing chorus working on these issues,” said Kristin Tracz, Program Officer at the Walton Family Foundation.We believe smart restoration projects, based on the best available science, will create economic opportunities for Southeast Louisiana now, and for generations to come.”
