The Ige Administration supports a healthy environment and responsible economic growth through comprehensive planning that engages environmental interests, development interests, and other community interests.
Ige Administration Environment Plan
- Direct the newly-created Pacific-Asia Institute for Resilience and Sustainability, to mitigate risks from natural and man-made hazards, as well as to develop solutions for sustainable economic growth and adaptive plans for climate change.
- Move for implementation of Department of Health rules that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
- Increase funding to control the damage by invasive species through prevention, control, and outreach activities. An immediate action will be to step up the inspection of baggage and cargo for invasive species.
- Provide funding to protect Hawaii’s watersheds to ensure a continuous supply of clean drinking water for all.
