Sustainability ensures that the needs of the current generation are met without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The University of Guam Center for Island Sustainability was established in 2009 to lead and support the transition of our island region toward a sustainable future. CIS has since become a focal institute in our region for conducting sustainability- related research and community outreach, in cooperation and coordination with other appropriate government agencies, non-governmental organizations, and community groups to help meet island needs in the broader areas of environment, economy, society, and education.

CIS provides expertise and serves as an honest broker of information on an array of sustainability issues for Guam and Micronesia. The center’s team develops watershed restoration technologies; surveys island biodiversity; conducts coral reef educational outreach; provides energy audits for small businesses; coordinates recycling efforts; and builds local capacity in the marine and environmental sciences, among other projects. CIS encourages action on sustainability to decrease reliance on imports, improve energy independence, and increase food security, in order to reduce the export of money and build a thriving local economy that is more resilient to disasters and global changes.
