💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

Hawaii faces a severe affordable housing crisis that forces many local residents👩‍👩‍👧‍👦 to leave the state or live in substandard conditions. 🌺This article explores some of the possible solutions that have been implemented in other countries, such as co-operative housing, public loans, and prioritization of local needs.🌈These solutions could help Hawaii create more housing options that are accessible, sustainable, and community-oriented, and prevent the loss of its culture and people.

👥IMSPARK: Exploring the drivers and impacts of climate change-induced displacement👥

 👥Imagine...  Exploring the drivers and impacts of climate change-induced displacement👥

💡 Imagined Endstate: 

A world where vulnerable communities are empowered to adapt to the effects of environmental hazards and climate stressors, and where displacement is minimized and managed in a humane and dignified way.

💥 What’s the Big Deal: 

This study uses data-driven machine learning techniques to model and explain human displacement caused by sudden-onset disasters such as floods, storms, and landslides.🌊 It reveals that displacement is mainly influenced by the combination of poor household conditions and intense precipitation, and that differential vulnerability exists across regions and countries.🌎 The study provides empirical evidence and insights that could inform evidence-based mitigation and adaptation policies.

💡 What's the Big Deal:

🔍 The UHERO Rapid Health Survey sheds light on the links between mental health, food security, and socio-economic determinants in Hawaii.🚀 It reveals that while over 70% of participants rate their health as good to excellent, disparities exist based on socio-economic and demographic factors, particularly among Native Hawaiians and Filipinos. 😔 Barriers to accessing healthcare, including delays in general practitioner visits, dental care, specialty services, and mental healthcare, further hinder well-being. The survey also uncovers a prevalence of mental health conditions such as depression, low self-esteem, and suicidal ideation, highlighting the impact of unemployment, COVID-19, housing instability, and poverty.
