Practical training in sustainable sanitation for Tuvalu
Under the International Waters Project (IWP) in Tuvalu, a pilot project was established to address
“waste” with the aim of reducing the contamination of groundwater and coastal water by human
and animal waste.
Community-based activities included “low-tech” solutions to addressing environmental
degradation while national level activities involved activities with a more strategic institutional
focus. A Communications and Sanitation Training Programme was designed to investigate the
current understanding of poor sanitation in Tuvalu, raise awareness of its cost to public and
environmental health, and promote possible solutions.
