Spear Fighting For Water Solomon Islands

“With funding from the Global Environmental Facility’s Least Developed Countries Fund and supported by UNDP, the Solomon Islands Water Sector Adaptation Project (SIWSAP) is working to address water, sanitation, and hygiene challenges brought on by climate change in water stressed communities in six pilot sites throughout the Solomon Islands. The work centres on sites in six of the country’s nine provinces: Gizo, Taro, Tingoa, Ferafalu, Tuwo, and Santa Catalina.

The work in Santa Catalina Community will tackle pressing water and sanitation challenges – with an eye to the future as the impacts of climate change become more severe.

Championed by the Government of the Solomon Islands through the Ministry of Mines, Energy and Rural Electrification Water Resources Division in partnership with Ministry of Environment, Climate Change, Disaster Management and Meteorology, Ministry of Health and Medical Services (Environmental Health Division), SIWSAP activities are designed to ensure access to safe and affordable drinking water and to increase the reliability and quality of water supplies in targeted areas.”
