Tuvalu’s environment is under pressure: sea-water rise contaminating the soil with salt, direct impact
on waste and sewage systems from rising human density contributing to further damage. The 1987 UN
Brundlandt report has definitely shown the existing link between environment/ecology and
development /economy. Tomorrow’s economy stems from today’s environment. Investing in the
quality of soil, avoiding water pollution, protecting natural resources especially energy sources as well
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
