UH Sea Grant College Program

The UH (University of Hawaii at Mānoa) Sea Grant College Program has formed its newest center of excellence to assist coastal communities throughout Hawaii and the Pacific islands to prepare for the impacts of both natural and human-induced coastal hazards.

Hawai‘i Sea Grant’s Center for Coastal and Climate Science and Resilience brings together world-renowned university scientists and outreach professionals with government and community partners to focus on critical issues relating to increasing coastal hazards impacts with changing climate and sea-level rise.

This is particularly important in the Pacific, since most of the development and infrastructure are concentrated on or near low-lying coasts, making island communities highly susceptible to these threats.

To mitigate natural and human-induced coastal hazards, as well as conserve and restore critical coastal environments for future generations, it is imperative that coastal management and policy are based on cutting-edge science.

By creating an interdisciplinary center of excellence that brings together top university expertise in diverse fields such as oceanography, geology, engineering, law and community planning, it ensures that the proposed solutions take into account all viewpoints, and incorporate the latest scientific findings.
