  5. 5. Ocean and CoastalUses•7,284,069 Visitors in 2011•Native Hawaiian CulturalPractices and Gathering Rights•Public Trust -- Beach Access•Recreational Fishing•Commercial Fishing•Generate 40% of our energylocally by 2030 •Ocean Thermal Energy Conversion •Seawater Air Conditioning •Wave Energy 5

  10. 10. Special ManagementArea Permitting•Implemented and issued byeach county•Special controls ondevelopments within an areaalong the shoreline to avoidpermanent losses of valuableresources•Ensure that adequate access,by dedication or other means,to public owned or usedbeaches, recreation areas, andnatural reserves is provided•Implements CZM objectivesand goals•Major and minor permits 10
  11. 11. State Ocean Leases &Conservation DistrictUse Permits•State Board of Land andNatural Resources•Must be goals, policies andplans of the State•Concurrence of the director oftransportation•May allow leases in marine lifeconservation district, shorelinefisheries management area, orthe natural area reserve if noadverse impacts•No lease shall be awarded inareas designated as beingnecessary for national defense•Protect the publics use andenjoyment of the reefs•Identify use conflicts•Traditional and customaryHawaiian rights and Konohikifishing rights 11
  12. 12. Statewide GISProgram•Approximately 271 data layers;179 online•Includes marine and coastallayers•GIS partners from local, state, and federal agencies•Developing proof of conceptGIS application with coastaland marine layers •Ocean Recreation Areas •Offshore Installations •Offshore Sewer Lines •Restricted Fishing Areas •Cables •Coral Reefs •Whale Sanctuary Boundaries 12
  13. 13. CHALLENGES OPPORTUNITIES Planning fatigue  Robust regulatory system Gap analysis Sustaining broad stakeholder  Tradition of planning involvement  Native Hawaiian cultural Use permits are case by case issues built into and burden is on the applicant constitution, statutes, and Showing decision-makers and regulations users that MSP enables fully  Federal Funding Support informed decision-making Terrestrial plans do not for Sub-Region in NOP include ocean planning  Enthusiastic supporters ORMP is not enforceable 13
  14. 14. Federal CMSP Efforts under the National Ocean Policy 14
  15. 15. Pacific Region•2.9 Million Square Kilometersin Ocean Area•Includes EEZ of AmericanSamoa, Commonwealth of theNorthern Marianas Islands(CNMI), Hawaii and Guam•Also includes EEZs ofunpopulated areas known asthe Pacific Remote Island Areas(PRIA)(Wake, Johnston, Palmyra, etc.)•For purposes of NOP, thePacific Islands Region iscomprised ofHawaii, Guam, CNMI, andAmerican Samoa 15
  16. 16.  Executive Branch Interagency Initiative Recognizes the importance of U.S. oceans and the Great Lakes Sets forth nine priority objectives (e.g., CMSP) Recognizes nine regions (e.g., Pacific Islands Region) Creates Regional Planning Bodies (RPB) to implement NOP 16
  17. 17.  Federal members  Department of Transportation  Department of Interior (USGS, BOEM, FWS)  Department of Commerce (NOAA)  Department of Defense (USMC)  Joint Chiefs of Staff  Department of Agriculture (NRCS)  Environmental Protection Agency Western Pacific Fishery Management Council member Two members each from Hawaii, Guam, CNMI, American Samoa 17
  18. 18.  Fishery Management Council is expected to nominate their representative in June Letters to Pacific Islands Region governors are expected to be mailed in June Federal RPB members have met Will be assessing capacity of all agencies to contribute towards CMSP Draft charter, draft work plan, and begin drafting CMSP plan 18
  19. 19. CHALLENGES OPPORTUNITIES Jurisdictional issues  Form a good working Funding relationship across territorial,  Largest cost is travel state, and federal agencies  Create a strategic coastal and Expansive region ocean management plan that Incorporating indigenous not only incorporates peoples’ perspective economic and defense driven Organizing various and actions, but also culturally disparate CMSP efforts important and recreationally across the region important activities 19

  21. 21. Creating the PROP•Partnership between thegovernors of Hawaii, AmericanSamoa, Guam and CNMI•Mission is to identify coastaland ocean managementpriorities that require acoordinated regional responseand increased collaboration toeffectively address these issues•Opportunity to collaborate onunique and common coastaland ocean resourcemanagement topics•MSP may be one tool utilizedby PROP for planning purposes•Anticipate formalizing PROPin 2012 21
  22. 22. Pacific RegionDistance by Air•Hawaii toGuam/CNMI = 3,828•Hawaii to AmericanSamoa = 2,585•Hawaii to SFO =2,340•Guam to Brisbane =2,883•Guam to Japan =1,625 22
  23. 23. CHALLENGES OPPORTUNITIES Identifying priorities in an  There are existing expansive region partnerships in the larger Funding pacific region  Largest cost is travel  PROP governments have Expansive region established relationships Incorporating stakeholder  Gives the Pacific Islands input Region a stronger voice in Changes in administration the RPB process  Leveraging science and knowledge 23
