The University of New Orleans’ Center for Hazards Assessment, Response and Technology (UNO-CHART) is an applied social science research center comprised of faculty, research associates, and graduate research assistants. Our team members represent sociology, planning, urban studies, political science, fine arts, and engineering sciences. Founded in 2001, UNO-CHART focuses on: hazards research; mitigation; coastal restoration; community education; outreach; and capacity building. UNO-CHART examines the ways in which Louisiana communities prepare for and respond to the inherent risks associated with the Gulf Coast region.
Striving to provide the most up-to-date information and educational resources, UNO-CHART partners with local communities to support their efforts in increasing safety and resilience. We collaborate with stakeholders to learn best practices; provide accessible literature; offer workshops to inform citizens, business owners, non-profit organizations, and elected officials; and encourage open dialogue with local citizens on hazard mitigation.
