Pacific RISA, in collaboration with the Hawaiʻi Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation Commission, led the Fifth National Climate Assessment Author Panel as part of this year’s Hawaiʻi Climate Week Climate Conference (March 27-28). The conference began with an oli, a Hawaiian chant and a recognition of place by Malia Nobrega-Olivera, an inspiring speech by youth speaker Mason Fong, and some words from Governor Josh Green. The Chapter 30: Hawaiʻi and the Pacific Islands NCA5 author panel were able to answer many audience questions, and guest speaker Dr. Jane Lubchenco gave an impassioned speech on the urgency of climate change and how the NCA works to explain the effects we are already seeing. The breakout groups at the end of the session spurred great conversation around all the main focuses of the National Climate Assessment and was a great way to kick off the conference.
