Promoting Water Sustainability Literacy at the University of Hawaii at Manoa

Research output: Other contribution


Hawaii faces immediate challenges in meeting water demands and implementing wastewater and stormwater reuse programs. Despite our location in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, our water resources are very limited and Hawaii’s ecosystems and environments are increasingly threatened by drought and the impacts of environmental degradation and climate change. The purpose of this water literacy project is to address complex human-environment interactions associated with water resource management, as mediated by the diverse cultural, political, and economic conditions in the State of Hawaii. In particular, we focus on educating the University of Hawaii at Manoa (UHM) campus community to raise literacy about waterrelated issues at the campus, neighborhood, watershed, and island scales.
