American Sāmoa and Maui are home to some of the most beautiful ecosystems on earth. But if you've lived there long, you know that American Sāmoa and Maui (like everywhere else) are vulnerable to natural and man-made disasters. Vulnerabilities include such risks as drought, wildfire, heavy storms and flooding, mudslides, erosion, tsunami, and earthquakes, among others.

Some of these hazards will be exacerbated in the coming years by changes to the climate. For this reason, disaster and climate change preparedness can go hand in hand. Many disaster preparedness actions will make families, business, and communities better prepared for climate change as well.

The purpose of this project is to better understand American Sāmoa's and Maui's relationship with natural hazards and to help their citizens and professionals prepare for future events. This project connected with American Sāmoa and Maui community members about their experiences with hazard events in three different ways:

  1. An online survey
  2. Interviews with community members and professionals
  3. Preparedness workshops in Pago Pago and Wailuku
These booklets include information about natural hazards and vulnerabilities to disaster in American Sāmoa and Maui, stories from project participants about their experiences, and a guide to disaster and climate change preparedness.

This project was funded by the American Psychological Foundation Visionary Grant, with support from the Pacific Regional Integrated Sciences and Assessments (Pacific RISA) program and the East-West Center.
