Leaders and representatives of communities and stakeholder groups have gathered in Funafuti to direct Tuvalu’s policy response to a range of increasingly serious water and sanitation issues.  

Close to 100 people assembled for two days at the Nanutasi Fou Falekaupule on Funafuti atoll to participate in a lively but constructive debate on how to best secure Tuvalu’s water future.

In opening Tuvalu’s first Sustainable Water Forum, Minister for Public Utilities Mr Kausea Natano stressed the critical importance of water to the atoll country.
