APA-HI Lunch Talk:

Oahu Resilience Strategy and Actions for Implementation


Josh Stanbro

Chief Resilience Officer and Executive Director

Office of Climate Change, Sustainability and Resiliency

City and County of Honolulu

Check-in begins at 11:45 a.m. Presentation begins promptly at noon.


Launched in spring 2019, the O‘ahu Resilience Strategy articulates 44 discrete actions to address resilience challenges and opportunities identified from a comprehensive engagement and research process. The Resilience Strategy stands on four main pillars and the need to act together to address these issues and opportunities: Remaining Rooted – Ensuring an Affordable Future for Our Island; Bouncing Forward – Fostering Resilience in the Face of Natural Disaster; Climate Security – Tackling Climate Change by Reducing Emissions and Adapting to Impacts; Community Cohesion – Leveraging the Strength and Leadership of Local Communities. More than 2,200 community members directly contributed to the process along with dozens of organizations; nearly 100 working group members; a 21-member Resilience Strategy Steering Committee; a City Resilience Team; other City department staff; and the Office of Climate Change, Sustainability & Resiliency staff, interns, and AmeriCorps VISTAs. This Resilience Strategy was written by the community. Over an 18-month period grassroots residents and community leaders helped shape and craft the 44 resilience actions that form the body of this strategy and lay a path to a resilient future for O‘ahu. Learn about the process and outputs, see how you can support O‘ahu’s resilience into the implementation phase.
