What did you enjoy the most while studying at IWC?
I enjoyed the knowledge exchange among students and lecturers on how different countries manage water resources and tackle water-related challenges. The exposure to field-based problem solving tasks was also an interesting aspect of the program. My IWC Masters degree has broadened my understanding of various water issues. Particularly, I have been able to participate in my country’s reform of the water sector as part of my role at the National Water Supply and Sanitation Council in Zambia. On a personal level, my peers have recognised that I have a better understanding of the multi-disciplinary aspects required in sustainable water management.
This wastewater management feasibility study for Nauru is a component of the Global Environment Facility – Pacific Integrated Water Resources Management Project (GEF-Pacific IWRM) that aims to assist the country with enhancing its water security. The wastewater management component focuses on protection of groundwater resources from surface contamination-prone activities, particularly black water disposal methods, through identification and pilot project implementation of appropriate, cost effective sanitation options.
