Gov. John Bel Edwards is the keynote speaker for the 27th annual Tulane Environmental Law and Policy Summit March 11-12, which this year is themed “Environmental Litigation.”

Louisiana’s governor will speak live from the law school building, Weinmann Hall, from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. March 11, and his speech will be televised live via Zoom. He will speak on Louisiana’s climate initiatives and its recently adopted Climate Action Plan. In-person attendance is limited due to COVID-19 policies.

The governor’s speech will touch on the work of the state’s Climate Initiatives Task Force, an effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the state, which increases temperatures and increasingly is responsible for sea level rise, endangering Louisiana’s coast and people, as well as vital habitats and ecosystems.
