The Center for Island Climate Adaptation and Policy (ICAP), located within the University of Hawaii’s Sea Grant College Program, provides science-based policy and planning research for decision-makers in Hawai‘i and other island leaders. ICAP prepared this white paper at the request of Senator Shan Tsutsui, whose office sought a technical evaluation of Senate Bill 468 (relating to shoreline setbacks). ICAP finds that SB 468 as originally introduced would have a beneficial net impact on coastal resiliency for the State of Hawai‘i.
