East-West Center researchers see impacts of climate change in Hawaii

The Department of Planning and Permitting (DPP) is holding a series of pop-up workshops to gather input on how climate change and sea level rise will affect the area between Kahala and Pearl City, also known as the Primary Urban Center (PUC).

Information gathered at the pop-ups will help the DPP as it updates the PUC development plan, which aims to guide long-term growth, development and public investments for the area.
