The Hawaiʻi Green Growth Local2030 Hub has released the executive summary for the first statewide Voluntary Local Review (VLR). The release was launched during the American SDG Leadership event hosted by the Brookings Institute and UN Foundation, featuring a discussion with Hawai‘i's Governor Ige and Senator Schatz with UNF president Elizabeth Cousens.
Hawaiʻi’s first statewide Voluntary Local Review assesses progress to date and provides 2020 benchmark data to inform decision-making, including on economic recovery, through the Aloha+ Challenge – Hawai‘i’s framework to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Hawai‘i is the first to present a comprehensive statewide Voluntary Local Review – that includes all four counties – in the nation, and joins cities from Los Angeles to New York City, Bristol, Helsinki and others around the world that have reported progress. Produced by the Hawai‘i Green Growth Local2030 Hub in collaboration with network partners from across government, business and civil society sectors, the report covers six-years of data on the Aloha+ Challenge, based on metrics that were co-developed by partners statewide across all four counties and used to track progress through the open-data Aloha+ Dashboard.
Please find the VLR executive summary, along with the social media toolkit for Local2030's communication platforms to promote.
The full report will be released in October 2020.
