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

This guidebook describes a comprehensive set of land-use policy tools that can help shape Hawai‘i’s efforts to successfully adapt to rising sea levels in the coming decades.

Hawai‘i is expected to experience sea level rise of one foot by 2050 and three feet by the end of the century—sea level rise of this magnitude poses significant economic, social, and environmental challenges. This toolkit aims to help people identify and explain key land-use policy tools that state and local government agencies can use in support of sea level rise adaptation in Hawai‘i.
