Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy
The Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy (“ICAP”) facilitates a sustainable, climate-conscious future for Hawai‘i, the Pacific, and global island communities - producing innovative, interdisciplinary research and real-world solutions for island decision-makers in the public and private sectors. As a focal point for University of Hawai‘i climate expertise, ICAP serves as a two-way conduit between the university and island communities to catalyze climate change adaptation and resiliency.
A team of academic specialists in UH Mänoa’s Planning, Ocean Science, Hawaiian Studies departments and the Law School are the primary source for the Center’s work, while other departments across the UH campus are encouraged to participate and contribute in order to achieve the Center’s mission to provide top-notch climate data and solution-sets. The work of ICAP is primarily focused on science, policy, planning, and indigenous environmental knowledge.
ICAP published “Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Land Use in Hawai‘i: A Policy Tool Kit for State and Local Governments” in 2011, which also is reviewed in this clearinghouse.
