The end of sugar and the start of a just transition of water
Location: Wentworth 1
Speaker: Christopher Knudson - Assistant Professor, Department of Geography and Environmental Studies, UH at Hilo
Abstract: After centuries of holding water rights on Maui, sugar companies reaped their last harvest in December 2016. This decline and cessation of sugar production has raised questions of how the great amounts of water the companies no longer need should be allocated: whether the companies can put the water towards other uses, or whether there will be sufficient water for cultural and ecological purposes in keeping with the public trust principles in the State Water
Code. In particular, the ending of large-scale commercial sugar production on Maui has created an important moment of transition for the island with the possibilities for a more culturally, politically, and ecologically just management of water. This talk considers how a just transition of water on Maui is shaped by two intertwined legacies: the infrastructure of water delivery in the form of ‘auwai and sugar company ditches, and the hybrid governance mechanisms concerning water access and use.
All are welcome!
