Public input sought for Climate Change Vulnerability Survey

Public input is being sought for a Climate Change Vulnerability Survey to help develop a Climate Action and Resiliency Plan that focuses on climate adaptation and carbon mitigation strategies for Maui County, the Office of Climate Change, Resiliency and Sustainability announced.

The survey can be found on the office’s newly launched Climate Hub, also known as the “ClimATE (Climate Action through Engagement) Hub.” Its web address is www.resilientmauinui.org

The hub promotes civic engagement with projects and initiatives to support climate action and resiliency. The website features current projects and highlights the development of Maui County’s Climate Action and Resiliency Plan.

“Our county’s geographic isolation increases our vulnerability to more frequent and intense climate change effects and related economic impacts,” said Alexander de Roode, Maui County’s Energy Commissioner. “Signs include intensifying wildfires, floods, rising sea levels, coral bleaching, droughts and extreme weather. These threaten water, food and energy supplies as well as health and economic stability.”

The Office of Climate Change, Resiliency and Sustainability is leading an effort to develop a Climate Action and Resiliency Plan with the assistance of Maui County department representatives and an advisory committee made up of local community members and the general public.

For more information, visit www.resilientmauinui.org, send email to CCRS.office@mauicounty.gov or call the Office of the Mayor at (808) 270-7855.
