OPD Highlights SSG at World IUCN Conference
September 9, 2021
OPD is grateful for the leadership of Governor Torres and Lt. Governor Palacios and the Planning and Development Advisory Council for their support of sustainability planning and Smart, Safe Growth! We also send a big MAHALO to Pacific RISA for the opportunity to highlight how the Comprehensive Sustainable Development Plan (CSDP) is achieving Smart, Safe Growth (SSG) including climate-smart adaptation and mitigation planning efforts in the CNMI! Smart, Safe Growth is a set of principles that are guiding sustainable development planning and project implementation to support improved outcomes for people, prosperity, and our planet. You can view the short panel discussion with Pacific Island-based leaders that was prepared for and shown at the IUCN World Conservation Congress, Marseille, France, 3-11 September 2021 here.
