  • Project Objectives • To improve water resource and wastewater management and water use efficiency in Pacific Island Countries • To balance overuse and conflicting uses of scarce freshwater resources through policy and legislative reform and, • To implement applicable and effective Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) and Water Use Efficiency (WUE) plans
  • Project Components • Component 1: Demonstration, Capture, and Transfer of Best Practices • Component 2: IWRM and WUE Indicator Framework • Component 3: Policy, Legislative and Institutional Reform for IWRM and WUE • Component 4:Regional and National Capacity Building and Sustainability Programme
  • Demonstration Projects 1. Watershed Management Federated States of Micronesia • Ridge to Reef: Protecting Water Quality from Source to Sea in the FSM Palau • Ngerikiil Watershed Restoration for the Improvement of Water Quality Samoa • Rehabilitation and Sustainable Management of Apia Catchment Vanuatu • Sustainable Management of Sarakata Watershed (GW)
  • Demonstration Projects 2. Wastewater Management & Sanitation Marshall Islands • Integrated Water Management and Development Plan for Laura Groundwater Lens, Majuro Atoll (GW) Nauru • Enhancing water security for Nauru through better water management and reduced contamination of groundwater Tuvalu • Integrated Sustainable Wastewater Management (Ecosan) for Tuvalu
  • Demonstration Projects 3. Water Resources Assessment & Protection Cooks Islands • Integrated freshwater and coastal management on Rarotonga (GW) Fiji Islands • Environmental and Socio-Economic Protection in Fiji: Integrated Flood Risk Management in the Nadi River Basin Niue • Using Integrated Land Use, Water Supply and Wastewater Management as a Protection Model for Alofi Town Groundwater Supply and Nearshore Reef (GW)
  • Demonstration Projects 4. Water Use Efficiency & Water Safety Solomon Islands • Managing Honiara City Water Supply and Reducing Pollution through IWRM Approaches Tonga • Improvement and Sustainable Management of Nieafu Aquifer Groundwater Resources in Vava'u Islands (GW)
  • Key Messages – It’s the people thing! • Community to Cabinet – building the connectivity between local action and primary governance structures both as formal and informal conduits. • Doing is Seeing the Need – communities have traditional and experiential knowledge but the realisation that something is amiss is not always obvious. – Doing defines the needs and implements responses which heightens awareness and the need for better information thereby enabling a role for scientific and technical knowledge. – Doing also makes governance gaps obvious and provides a “real” reason for governance. Doing also demonstrates the benefits and thereby impetus for replication and upscaling. – Doing helps converts the skeptical
  • Integration’s Role in Sustainable Development • Integration is a tool within the overarching framework of sustainable development. • Integrations higher objective is thus to support sustainable development. • Integration seeks to improve responses to the degradation of PIC land and water ecosystems – Pressures of populations and demands on resource – Vulnerabilities expanded due to climate change What is at stake? • Biodiversity – terrestrial and marine • Water – fresh and coastal • Land • Ecosystem Services
  • Gaps/Barriers to Implementation of Integrated, Cross-Sectoral Approaches in PICs • Fragmented, sectoral efforts – Across different landscapes and government levels • Need to enhance capacity • Need to replicate and upscale good examples (such as IWRM) • Need for enhanced civil society participation • Need to improve linkages between land/water/forest and coastal area planning processes – “ridge to reef” approach • Need for base level knowledge for informed decisions
  • Environmental Stress Reduction Sustainable Development and Environmental Stress Reduction National and Regional Replication Local Action
  • The Elements • Buying Into Solutions – Supporting local level action and capacity building – Appropriate and workable local solutions – Demonstrating tangible household and environmental benefits – Gaining household level action – Implement at local absorptive capacity. • Sharing the View – Coordination and Cooperation Nationally and Regionally – Governance Facilitated through APEX Ctee – Effective and Efficient Project Management – Well Resourced and Delivered Communications – Demonstrating Benefits Through Tangible Results • Building Capacity – Learning from Doing through Demonstrations and Training – Making it Stick through appropriate policy frameworks – Knowledge acquisition, synthesis, application and sharing
  • The Elements • Sustainable Development and Environmental Stress Reduction – Informed Decision Making – Holistic approach to Biodiversity, Land and Water ie Integration – Climate Change Adaptations – Demonstrating Benefits – Monitoring and Reporting on Meaningful Indicators • Global, Regional, National and Local Impacts – CC Mitigation – Equity in implementation of adaptations and development of resiliency
  • PACIFIC R2R Program “Pacific Islands Ridge-to-Reef National Priorities - Integrated Water, Land, Forest & Coastal Management to Preserve Biodiversity, Ecosystem Services, Sequester Carbon, Improve Climate Resilience and Sustain Livelihoods “
  • GEF IW Ridge 2 Reef Program Structure • Program vs Project • Program consists of ‘independent’ national R2R projects ‘linked’ by a regional program support project • Overall Program Coordination
  • New GEF IW Ridge 2 Reef Project • Pioneers integrated approaches, with opportunities to go further thematically and geographically • Through the follow-up IWRM project • Through direct links with the national R2R projects • Leadership at the national and regional level • Opportunities for further upscaling and replication in GEF-6 and in Climate Change adaptation • Building and strengthening capacity in each PIC for integrated approaches and keep that capacity • Better opportunities for cross country cooperation
  • GEFPACIFICR2R • Component 1: National Multi-focal Area Ridge- to-Reef Demonstrations in all Pacific Island Countries • Component 2: Improved Governance for Integrated, Climate resilient Land, Water, Forest and Coastal Management • Component 3: Regional and National/Local Ridge-to-Reef Indicators, Monitoring and Evaluation and Knowledge Management • Component 4: Regional Program Coordination
