Achieving the Sustainable Development Goals requires a shift in how the water sector currently works. We need a greater focus on strengthening local capacity to in order to assess and address sector gaps. We do this by partnering with organisations to co-design, evidence-based capacity developing programs or by delivering other projects.
The Pacific Water Research Program brings together IWC researchers with our Pacific and Australian partners to undertake research targeting the complex water problems facing many Pacific Island Countries. IWC works in meaningful partnership with our Pasifika partners - from tertiary institutions through to government and civil society organisations. We also drive collaboration across the many disciplines that need to come together to address real world water problems. The IWC Pacific Research Program is committed to developing regional and country-focused evidence, resources and approaches, for use by practitioners, policy-makers and communities across the Pacific who work on the human dimensions of climate-resilient water security, such as catchment and water resources management, and, water supply, sanitation and hygiene (WASH).
