Promoting action to build resilient and sustainable island communities

Islands & Isolated Communities Congress

Date: 9 to 11 September 2013 Location: Hawaii Convention Center, Hawaii Host: In conjunction with the Asia Pacific Clean Energy Summit Description: Islands and Isolated Communities are the planet's vanguard societies facing imported energy dependencies, constrained resources, and vulnerability to climate change. The sustainability and resiliency of island communities depends on best practices developed in energy, water, agriculture, security, resource and disaster risk management and societal actions. As island communities are facing these complex and interdependent challenges across the planet, the Islands and Isolated Communities Congress is focused on building a global movement to champion these solutions. The solutions developed on islands will lay the foundation for best practices world-wide. You are invited to join global leaders developing solutions and projects; from island nations worldwide, to land-locked greening cities, to isolated military installations.
