Facing Our Future: Adaptive Planning for Sea Level Rise in Maui and Hawaii Counties

July 2012

A partnership was established between the County of Maui, County of Hawaii, and the University of Hawaii Sea Grant Program to prepare this coastal adaptation planning report. Recommendations are outlined which are intended to provide a foundation for improving shoreline planning for coastal hazards at the local level, focusing on sea level rise.  The recommendations were developed by coastal planners from the Counties of Maui and Hawaii, and are specific to issues that can be addressed within the context of the existing County regulatory frameworks.

Sea-Level Rise and Coastal Land Use in Hawaii: A Policy Tool Kit for State and Local Governments

December 2011

This Policy Tool Kit was developed by the Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy (“ICAP”) and the University of Hawai‘i Sea Grant College Program. The Tool Kit surveys state adaptation plans, federal efforts, and other key sources to identify and discuss important land use policy tools for Hawai‘i, and suggests how these policies can be used by state and local governments to avoid or lessen the impacts of sea-level rise and related coastal hazards.
