HIPA assisted the Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Task Force in developing the Hawaii 2050 Sustainability Plan—the state’s first long-range sustainability plan in 30 years. The Task Force decided to invest in a community-driven approach that asked the residents what future they want for their children and grandchildren.
