EVENT: Tuesday, January 27th, 6:00 – 7:30pm
at Propeller (4035 Washington Avenue, New Orleans, LA)
How can we better connect entrepreneurs with opportunities to restore Louisiana’s coast? Join Propeller and GNO, Inc to discuss the sneak preview of a report prepared by past Water Challenge winner, Tierra Resources, and supported by Entergy through their Environmental Initiatives Fund, that depicts the emerging wetland carbon market.
“Carbon Market Opportunities for Louisiana’s Coastal Wetlands,” a two-year assessment of the potential to develop blue carbon projects on Louisiana’s coast, predicts up to $1.6 billion in wetland restoration funding over the next 50 years. Representatives from Entergy, the Environmental Defense Fund, ConocoPhillips, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority, and St. Charles Parish will join the discussion on how the results of the report will affect current and future coastal restoration efforts, and where entrepreneurs can tap into this market.
The event will be held from 6:00-7:30pm at Propeller (4035 Washington Avenue, New Orleans, LA) with refreshments and networking opportunities to follow.
