dc.description.abstract Maui is home to some of the most beautiful ecosystems on earth. But if you've lived here long, you know that Maui (like everywhere else) is vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters. Vulnerabilities include such risks as drought, wildfire, heavy storms and flooding, mudslides, erosion, tsunami, and earthquakes, among others. Some of these hazards will be exacerbated in the coming years by changes to the climate. For this reason, disaster and climate change preparedness can go hand in hand. Many disaster preparedness actions will make families, business, and communities better prepared for climate change as well. The purpose of this project is to better understand Maui's relationship with natural hazards and to help Maui citizens and professionals prepare for future events. This project connected with Maui community members about their experiences with hazard events in three different ways: 1. An online survey 2. Interviews with community members and professionals 3. A preparedness workshop in Wailuku This booklet includes information about natural hazards and vulnerabilities to disaster in Maui, stories from project participants about their experiences, and a guide to disaster and climate change preparedness. en_US
