The State of Hawaii, Office of Planning and Sustainable Development, gathers, analyzes, and provides information to the Governor to assist in the overall analysis and formulation of state policies and strategies. The purpose of the Office is to (1) provide central direction and cohesion in the allocation of resources and effectuation of state activities and programs, and (2) effectively address current or emerging issues and opportunities.
This past July, the office unveiled the newly revised and updated Hawai‘i 2050 Sustainability Plan: Charting a Course for the Decade of Action (2020-2030). The plan includes 262 Recommended Actions, 38 Strategies, and 8 Focus Areas (found on pages 96-109) for these next 8 years to maintain our state’s progress toward sustainability and climate resilience during this Decade of Action.
As further enhancement, this week the office proudly announced the launched of the online and interactive version of the plan. Utilizing ArcGIS StoryMap, this version offers a condensed, online, and interactive version of the Hawai‘i 2050 Sustainability Plan: Charting a Course for the Decade of Action (2020-2030) launched yesterday. This website will allow for the plan’s material to be maintained as a living resource as the State of Hawai‘i progresses in its climate and sustainability commitments.
