Thank you for your participation.

The State of Hawaiʻi’s Office of Planning is updating the Hawai‘i 2050 Sustainability Plan to reflect current state priorities; align the state’s goals, policies, and actions with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); and develop a roadmap of sustainability and climate change actions for 2020-2030.

The purpose of this survey is to gather initial input from stakeholders to inform the 2020-2030 update. We encourage you to share this survey with your organization(s), friends, and ʻohana, to include their manaʻo and perspective.

About the Plan
The Plan was published in 2008 and serves as a long-range plan for Hawaiʻi to prepare for global warming, climate change impacts, and a sustainable future. "Sustainability" means achieving the following:

(1)    Respect of the culture, character, beauty, and history of the State's island communities;

(2)    Striking a balance between economic, social, community, and environmental priorities; and

(3)    Meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.

The 2008 Plan encouraged the use of renewable energy, reducing Hawai‘i’s greenhouse gas emissions, promoting water conservation and reuse, advocating for waste reduction, increasing Hawai‘i’s food security, supporting clean transportation, promoting pedestrian and bicycle accessibility, encouraging smart-growth, planning for sea level rise, stressing the need for affordable housing, encouraging a diversified economy, and supporting our Native Hawaiian culture.
