He Lono Moku: State of the Environment 2017 Report Released

The Hawai‘i Environmental Funders Group (EFG) released the second edition of He Lono Moku: State of the Environment 2017 report outlining progress on Hawai‘i's sustainability goals. Each year, He Lono Moku focuses on three priority areas that are critical to Hawaiʻi's sustainability, building on data from the Aloha+ Challenge Dashboard. The Aloha+ Dashboard actively and continually tracks progress toward the state’s six integrated sustainability goals for 2030: clean energy, local food, natural resource management, solid waste, smart sustainable communities and green education and workforce.

This year, He Lono Moku focuses on Hawai‘i priority areas of local food, invasive species, green business and green workforce. The report highlights on-the-ground efforts taken in achieving the Aloha+ Challenge goals of doubling local food production and increasing local green jobs and education. The report also focuses on progress made on the Hawai‘i Interagency Biosecurity Plan, created by the Governor’s Sustainable Hawai‘i Initiative and aligned with the Aloha+ Challenge natural resource management goal.

Bright spots noted in the report include the expansion of the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, the Hawai‘i-hosted International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) World Conservation Congress, Hōkūle‘a’s three-year voyage to spread the message of Mālama Honua (caring for Island Earth), the new Honolulu Office of Climate Change, Sustainability, and Resiliency, and Hawai‘i’s signing of legislation that aligns with the Paris Agreement.

EFG released the inaugural He Lono Moku report in advance of the 2016 IUCN World Conservation Congress, and focused on freshwater security, renewable energy, and community-based marine management. Learn More at http://hawaii-environment.com/
