GEF Pacific IWRM Project

Recognising the accomplishments of communities, governments and IWRM teams through national IWRM Achievement Stories

7th March 2014: The IWRM project has been working hard over the past five years to ensure that real progress is made towards sustainable management of water and wastewater across the participating Pacific countries. To achieve this there has been a dedicated collective of project managers and assistants, local and national government members and most importantly of all local communities at demonstration sites, learning from each other and working together to make it all happen. These stories, written by national project managers and community members highlight some key achievements from each country. From innovative community engagement techniques and enhancing community capacities to introducing new waste-reduction technologies and developing water-related polices; these stories show how the projects are positively impacting on the communities and generating a deeper understanding of IWRM across the Pacific.
