Pre-Disaster Mitigation Plan For the City and County of Honolulu

The purpose of mitigation planning is for State and County governments to identify the natural hazards that impact them, to identify actions and activities to reduce any losses from those hazards, and to establish a coordinated process to implement the plan, taking advantage of a wide range of resources.

A comprehensive plan for the mitigation of losses from natural hazards was prepared in accordance with the federal Disaster Mitigation Act of 2000. Risk and expected loss analyses were conducted to identify the natural hazards and actions and activities to reduce any losses.
