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).
This International WaterCentre led research project is exploring how CSOs and governments can better enable rural community water management in the Pacific to improve SDG6 outcomes, using community water management plus practices. Research focus: Progressing inclusive, resilient and sustainable SDG6 and WASH outcomes in the rural Pacific: approaches to enable effective community-based water management Funded by:

The Asian Water Development Outlook (AWDO) is a flagship water product of the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the Asia- Pacific Water Forum (APWF) to highlight important water management issues. We led the development and review of two key dimension indicators on the topic of water security for the AWDO.
