Project results notes: Vanuatu-Sustainable Management of the Sarakata Watershed
2012: The main objective of the project is to provide an operational network and mechanism to plan for and monitor all developments in the watershed that may affect the ecology and availability and quality of water and other natural resources. The main expected outcome will be great government and community awareness and governance, reduction in the negative water quality impacts, temporal and spatial availability of water for all users, and mitigation of flood associated adverse affects. It is anticipated that this will ensure the Sarakata Basin is managed sustainably from “Ridge to Reef” to meet the needs of the rural and urban populations it serves and providing and exemplary model nationally and regionally.
