Hamakua: Community Strengths, Needs and Opportunities

Location: UCB, room 100

Dennis Flemming of the Hamakua Institute will be presenting a talk entitled "Hamakua: Community Strengths, Needs and Opportunities" on Wednesday, September 4th at 6 pm in UCB 100. The talk is sponsored by CAFNRM and is based on the institutes' April 2019 collective assessment report of the Hamakua region's potential for sustainable rural economic development and social progress. Several faculty and students from CAFNRM and CAS contributed to the report.

Dennis has spent more than 20 years leading rural development projects in Africa, South America, the South Pacific, and SE Asia often under extremely challenging socio-political situations. His work has frequently involved complex interactions among governments, non-governmental organizations, corporations, and rural people suffering from various levels of disenfranchisement.
