Sustainability Program

The Office of Economic Development is part of the County's Resiliency Team which is comprised of representatives from the Kaua'i County Planning Department, Kaua'i Emergency Management Agency, the Mayor's Office, and the University of Hawai'i Sea Grant College Program.

The Resiliency Team, led by the Planning Department along with consultant Raimi + Associates, is currently developing the Kaua'i Climate Adaptation Plan (CAP) to ensure our communities continue to thrive as the climate changes. 

The CAP will draw upon community and scientific knowledge to provide framework for County climate change adaptation actions. For more information and ways to get involved, please visit
