About the Event:

The Local2030 Islands Network warmly invites you to join us for the inaugural in-person convening of the Data for Climate Resilience Community of Practice and Sustainable & Regenerative Tourism Community of Practice, hosted in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and Pacific Risk Management ‘Ohana (PRiMO), on April 2-6, 2023 in Honolulu, Hawai‘i. These Communities of Practice, launched in 2022, have held a series of virtual meetings – this in-person gathering will mark the first annual convening of technical experts, practitioners, and government leaders from over 30 national and subnational islands across the globe. The Communities of Practice gatherings aim to provide space for island leaders, practitioners, and technical experts to share best practices and lessons learned, engage with technical training, collaborate, and exchange knowledge and unique island experiences to accelerate sustainable development in islands via a collaborative, peer-to-peer forum.

The in-person Community of Practice (CoP) Meeting is timed to coincide with the Pacific Risk Management ‘Ohana (PRiMO) Conference. This gives CoP participants the opportunity this year to take advantage of this gathering of hundreds of participants from around the Pacific to network, make connections, hear from subject matter experts on disaster risk management, learn from other islanders, discuss ongoing initiatives, and design action plans.
