An  analysis of issues affecting the management of coral reefs and the associated capacity building needs in the main Hawaiian Islands
  • Alternative Title:
    Hawaii capacity assessment
  • Description:
    "This capacity assessment is a component of the coral reef management priority setting process facilitated by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Coral Reef Conservation Program (NOAA CRCP) and initiated in 2009. The stated purpose of this process was "to develop place-based, local coral reef management priorities" for the seven United States (U.S.)state and territorial coral reef jurisdictions, including Hawaii. In Hawaii, the priorities in the 2010 publication of Hawaiian Archipelago' Coral Reef Management Priorities (henceforth, the "Priority Setting Document," or "PSD") were largely created in support of the ongoing development of the Hawaii Coral Reef Strategy: Priorities for Management in the Main Hawaiian Islands 2010-2020 (henceforth, the "Strategy") and The Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument Management Plan. Given that, the Strategy was the main lens for the capacity assessment process. For the purposes of this assessment, our scope included exclusively the Main Hawaiian Islands (also referred to as Hawaii and State of Hawaii as distinctive terms that are more appropriate in a given context). The Strategy includes, in Section 6, a brief summary of governance capacity issues in Hawaii entitled "Capacity Gaps." In this section, the Strategy states that, "The HCRS [the Strategy] cannot be implemented effectively without addressing capacity gaps in coral reef management." In September 2011, NOAA CRCP hired SustainaMetrix to conduct a more detailed assessment across all seven coral jurisdictions including Hawaii, which expands on this initial effort to address capacity gaps in ecosystem governance for coral reef management in Hawaii. This report summarizes the findings of our capacity assessment conducted in Hawaii between September 2012 and April 2013, including a 14-day site visit to Hawaii from November 26 to December 10, 2012, the review of over 140 background documents, over 65 interviews, and ongoing collaboration with the Hawaii Jurisdictional Capacity Assessment Team (J-CAT)"--Page 14 (Introduction).
