Tuvalu's film "Falevatia: a toilet for our future" featured on ABC Radio's Pacific Beat
11 March 2012: IWRM's Environmental Engineer, David Duncan was interviewed by Geraldine Coutts on ABC's Pacific Beat on 7th March. The interview focused on Tuvalu's water issues and the role of Ecosan in conserving water and reducing threats to the environment and human health. Coincidentally, NZ Radio featured "Flushing toilets the ruin of Tokelau's water supply" the same day. Commenting on Tuvalu's work, IWRM's Regional Project Manager, Marc Wilson said "It is great to see Tuvalu's practical demonstration of a locally designed composting toilet leading the way in the protection of water resources and helping shift community preference from flush toilets to Ecosan approaches in the Pacific Islands, particularly on atoll islands".
