PWWA Forum hopes to strengthen Pacific network
September 27, 2015 1:28 am
Government Ministers from Pacific Island countries meet at the inaugural Ministerial Forum in Papua New Guinea to commit to an agenda designed to significantly strengthen Pacific Water and Waste Water’s (PWWA) role in the Pacific.
The Forum is part of the 8th Annual Pacific Water and Waste Water Conference held recently that included representatives of the 20 Pacific island government water utilities that operate 26 facilities that comprise the membership of PWWA.
PWWA Chairman Opetaia Ravai says they are aware that the organisation has been evolving over the years from a loosely knit association that had limited expectations to the Pacific’s leading professional water body.
It is through this Conference and the Ministers’ endorsement that has reinforced their role.
Ravai say that the seven-point communiqué, the outcome of the Ministers Forum, was a document of immense importance for the future of Pacific water.
