In 2021 the ClimateWise team began working with the Maui County Office of Climate Change, Resiliency, and Sustainability (CCRS) to develop a countywide climate change vulnerability assessment. This assessment will build off of a variety of existing documents, including:
This planning effort aims to provide an integrated, high-level climate change vulnerability study to help guide County policies, projects, and budget priorities. This project is ongoing and resources will be added as they are completed. You can also visit the County of Maui Climate Action Through Engagement (ClimATE) Hub to learn more about the other efforts underway across the islands of Maui County.
This project includes significant community engagement across the three populated islands of Maui County: Maui, Molokai, and Lānaʻi. First, our team developed a community survey, distributed to all residents of Maui County in February 2022. The results of this survey informed the discussions at a stakeholder workshop in March. Finally, in June we completed a series of three virtual Talk Story sessions that focused on more remote areas of the county: the islands of Molokai and Lānaʻi and the communities of East Maui.
