Newsflash

Majuro, March 23, 2011 -  Water is obviously a real  concern for many people here in the Marshall Islands as hundreds gathered at the RMI International Convention Centre over two days this week to participate in the first ever National Water Summit.

The summit looked at some of the most pressing water issues facing the RMI including: water availability, distribution, quality, and management. Most participants also wanted to know what government is doing to resolve these issues and if there is a plan to better manage water.

The President, His Excellency Jurelang Zedkaia, when opening the summit urged participants to find practical ways to work together to solve water issues and urged all Marshallese to take personal responsibility for this vital resource.
