Abstract The city of Ebeye, Republic of the Marshall Islands, is facing a number of challenges to include overpopulation, collapsing infrastructure, a weak school system as well as a very limited economy. With the reduced mission of US Army Kwajalein Atoll (USAKA), Ebeye is facing a new reality that will be much different in 2023 than it is today. The need for a comprehensive approach to tackle the challenges facing Ebeye cannot be understated. The master planning document points toward self-sufficiency for the island of Ebeye, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) by 2023. The plan used the eight-step planning process as a guide as well as inculcating the Systems Decision Process. Goals related to government, social well-being, economy, education, and infrastructure. We then developed challenges and solutions for each of these five areas along with a phased implementation schedule. This first step identified potential gaps and solutions toward achieving self sufficiency. Ebeye 2023 is a first step in achieving self-sufficiency. As a master plan, no cost estimates or funding sources are developed or identified.
