Description

Watershed-based natural resource management in a coral island involves a peculiar set of challenges. A big concern is managing erosion, that tends to contaminate the runoff that ends up in the precious few fresh water sources and coral reefs.

This video draws from GEF’s Pacific-IWRM project on Pohnpei Islands, Federated States of Micronesia. The project aims to improve drinking water quality and significantly reduce pollutants entering fresh and marine waters around the area. Activities involve: Improvement of forest management and strengthening a Watershed Forest Reserve Area; Linking communities to create awareness on upstream to downstream impacts; Water quality monitoring programme; Assessment and mitigation of wastewater and pollution sources; Development of a Water Safety Plan and a Harbour Water Quality and Management Plan.
