Samoa’s GEF Pacific IWRM Demonstration Project entitled “Rehabilitation and Sustainable Management of the Apia Catchment” has made great progress in strengthening legal frameworks for water resource management and securing access to safe drinking water. Key project results include: Protection of land for inclusion in land reserve to reduce stress on water systems; finalisation of 3 Watershed Management Plans that define buffer zones and natural reserves; development of the Watershed Conservation Policy to guide legislation to reserve upland areas for water resource conservation; and on ground rehabilitation works to improve water quality. This Pacific IWRM ‘Progress Snapshot’ highlights results achieved to date. Check out the sample below and download the PDF for a high resolution version.
