Terrebonne Parish Perspectives Forum
Recording of the first Disaster Leadership Forum in Terrebonne Parish, held in November 2010.
The Parish Perspectives Project
The purpose of this project is to identify 10 each people from Terrebonne and Plaquemines parishes to participate in a Disaster Resilience Leadership Forum. The Forum will address important issues facing the Parish with regarding to the consequences of the BP Oil catastrophe and other challenges and opportunities faced in the future.
