Ala Wai Watershed Collaboration

The Ala Wai Watershed Collaboration is a network of government, business, and community partners that coordinates across sectors to advance a holistic and stakeholder-driven vision of Honolulu’s Ala Wai Watershed.

The AWWC’s three priorities are to address disaster resilience, strengthen the community’s sense of place, and improve the water and habitat quality of the Ala Wai canal and its tributaries to reduce health risks and enhance recreational values. The watershed vision encompasses the entire urban watershed from the waters of Waikīkī to the Koʻolau Mountains, and includes developing a system of green infrastructure features, uplifting placed based community engagement and education curricula, and coordinating environmental data collection and dissemination.
