Guam - Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell and Assistant Secretary for Insular Areas Esther Kia'aina joined Governors and Congressional representatives from each of the U.S. Insular Areas at their annual meeting of the Interagency Group on Insular Affairs (IGIA) at the U.S. Department of the Interior today in the nation's capitol. Governor Eddie Calvo and Congresswoman Madeleine Bordallo were in attendance. Discussions focused on major issues of importance to the territories, including climate change adaptation, workforce development, tourism, and compact impact aid.  More than 100 participants, including policy-level representatives from federal agencies with program responsibilities in the U.S. Insular Areas, discussed issues and considered interagency collaboration to address these concerns. This was the fifth meeting of the IGIA since President Obama reestablished the group in 2010 with the White House as Co-Chair to address policies for the U.S. insular territories.
