Tuvalu developed this Policy as a response to recent water crises, and to ensure that the people of Tuvalu have continued access to safe, reliable, affordable and sustainable water and sanitation facilities.
This guideline, developed as part of the PACC demonstration project, detail the process undertaken to design and build a community-managed water cistern in Lofeagai community, in the north of Funafuti Atoll
This paper investigates the water quality of the densely populated lagoonal coasts in Fongafale Islet, and the occurrence of water pollution. A comparison was then made with less populated natural coast in the islet. The primary pollution sources and pollution mechanism were identified. Through this investigation, the need for effective water quality control measures for coastal conservation is demonstrated.
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
UNEP Regional Seas Ports and Studies No. 136.
