Marc Wilson Talks Micronesia Water and Sanitation Issues on ABC Radio's Pacific Beat Program

Marc Wilson on ABC RadioThe Regional Manager of the GEF Pacific IWRM Project, Marc Wilson was interviewed by Geraldine Coutts on ABC’s Pacific Beat radio program on 20 December 2010. The interview focused on water issues in Micronesia and the outcomes of the 14th Micronesian Chief Executives Summit held in Palau in December. In response to a question about what was needed to protect Micronesia’s water resources, Mr. Wilson said "…I think really it requires a multi-pronged approach, and integrated approach so to speak. So we need people in communities to do basic things like handwashing and try to not pollute their water sources, we need governments to work on their existing systems, we need donors to make sure they better direct funds in the appropriate areas. It's just a huge undertaking really." The full transcript of the interview can be accessed on the ABC website by clicking here.

Micronesia's Traditional Leaders and Presidents Commit to Develop Water and Sanitation Policies

Micronesian Chief Executives Summit

Water and sanitation issues in Micronesia were brought to the attention of the region's Traditional Leaders and Presidents during the 5th Micronesian Traditional Leaders Conference (MTLC) and 14th Micronesian Chief Executives’ Summit (MCES) convened in Palau during November and December 2010, respectively. This builds on water policy initiatives of the Pacific IWRM Programme in Micronesia, and recent resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly and Human Rights Commission declaring access to water as an essential human right. An important outcome of this process was the establishment of a permanent sub-committee of the MCES tasked with addressing water and sanitation issues across Micronesia. The Traditional Leaders and Chief Executives also called on all jurisdictions to establish water task forces charged with developing national comprehensive water and sanitation policies and investment plans by 2012. The MTLC Declaration and the MCES Communique can be downloaded by clicking here.
