No. 16, March 2014     

Our journey around the Pacific looking at Sea Level Rise has led to our home, O'ahu; Over 1M residents and 4.5M annual visitors have seen 70% of the beaches eroding rapidly in recent years.
We looked into the challenges being faced at Sunset Beach, Lanikai, Kailua, Waikiki, and the Urban Core;
The solution is already in place for each community in the landmark Hawaii Law, Act 286.
Our focus has been on helping those living at elevation 10 feet above Sea Level;
Hawai'i will become the driving force in solutions for the Pacific Islands and LYON hopes to be a part of this endeavor.

PS: We wrote a new book! Act 286
