This paper focuses on emergent trends and ecosystem ―shocks‖, including climate change and hurricanes, along with resultant policies and practice that represent ecosystem adaptation, social-ecological learning, adaptive land use, mitigation, and governance. The role of urban form in adapting to and mitigating global warming will be explicitly addressed. A review of current structural and non-structural urban and coastal land use challenges and opportunities, with a special focus on the integrated New Orleans and coastal Louisiana ecosystems, will be of particular value to urban planners and local institutions dealing with climate change at the metropolitan scale.
