International Waters learning Exchange & Resource Network

Workshop Summary Report

This Knowledge Exchange event has brought national representatives from Tuvalu, Kiribati, FSM and the Cook Islands to American Samoa for a one week program, from the 7th – 11th of October 2019. The program consists of learning workshops, site visits and roundtable Q&A sessions. The purpose of this exchange was to expose participants to a long-term, operational and coordinated program that is addressing pig waste management in a Pacific Island context. It has given participants an opportunity to see governance arrangements in action, understand how compliance mechanisms can work, how to build community buy-in, and experience world class water quality monitoring and the key role that plays in communicating effectiveness of a program and ensuring public health safety. Reflections of the participants and lessons learned can be found in Annex 2 of the document
