The Eco-Economy sector broadly encompasses Conservation, Ecosystem and Environmental Restoration & Management and Climate Change Adaptation. Residents have expressed growing concerns about existing and potential threats to Maui Nui’s environment and natural resources including sea-level rise, storm surges, drought, declining coral reefs, invasive species and endangered species, among others.

Ecological concerns have spurred numerous discussions, proposals and strategic initiatives across multiple other sectors, including the visitor industry, agriculture, housing construction, and energy.  A wide swath of organizations in Maui Nui – public, private and nonprofit – are actively engaged in eco-economic activities in one form or another.
