This project was undertaken to implement the 2010 Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) which in part called for increased food and energy self-sufficiency. The project also carries out the New Day Plan which supports increased food self-sufficiency. Three reports were prepared with the assistance of grant funding from the Economic Development Administration (EDA). The Increased Food Security and Food Self-Sufficiency Strategy (Strategy) sets forth objectives, policies and actions to increase the amount of locally grown food consumed by Hawaii residents. The Strategy is a living document intended as a first step toward continued dialog and implementation. Volume II is entitled A History of Agriculture in Hawaii and Technical Reference Document. It examines the history of agriculture in Hawaii from the 1960s to the present, with a focus on the transition from plantation agriculture to diversified agriculture. Volume II also contains background information and serves as a resource base for the Strategy. Volume III is entitled Assessment of Irrigation Systems in Hawaii. It provides an assessment of the general status and needs of agricultural irrigation systems owned by the State of Hawaii. It provides estimated costs for rehabilitation and maintenance of these systems. Volume III also includes a summary of the economic impact of several inventoried agricultural irrigation systems.
