Climate Change Vulnerability - East Maui Community Talk Story

Maui County Climate Action and Resilience Plan


East Maui Community Talk Story
Tuesday, June 28 at 5:30 pm
 
As island residents, we are on the front lines of climate change. How do we prepare for and respond to its effects? In 2022, the Office of CCRS is currently working alongside community members to co-create Maui County’s first Climate Action and Resilience Plan (CARP): a comprehensive strategy for mitigating and adapting to climate change in Maui County.


Communities across Maui, Molokaʻi, and Lānaʻi are already familiar with drought, sea level rise, tropical storms, shoreline erosion, coral bleaching, native species loss, and more. A resilient future depends on reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and successfully adapting to ongoing changes in climate conditions.

The CARP will identify targeted policies, programs, and projects to:

• mitigate the County’s contributions to climate change;
• prepare for unavoidable impacts;
• reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through mitigation strategies;
• and increase resiliency by improving social equity throughout the community.


It is important in the planning process to hear from people of East Maui, including what our specific climate change concerns are, and what is most important to the us in the East Maui communities. These specific vulnerabilities should be included in the planning, and could be a help in the future to attach resources to address these issues.
