Sea Level Rise Adaptation Workshops This Week

Sust’ainable Molokai News Release

Don’t forget to join a walk-thru, COVID-friendly, workshop in your moku (district) to see firsthand Molokai’s maps forecasting areas that will be inundated from rising seas! The sea level is expected to rise approximately 4.07 feet in Hawaii before the end of 2100 if we continue to operate business as usual. Sust’ainable Molokai is leading the planning process to ensure that our community is prepared to adapt to this already occurring and ongoing change.

Molokai is the first island in the County to develop a plan for the effects of sea level rise — the Molokai Climate Change and Sea-Level Rise Adaptation and Resiliency Master Plan. Hele mai to the workshops and share your manaʻo on the infrastructure and projects the County should prioritize. Dinner will be provided!

Manaʻe workshop will be held Tuesday, Nov. 16 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Kilohana School, court side. Hoʻolehua/Kualapuʻu workshop is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 18 from 4 to 6 p.m. at Lanikeha.
