Objective of Water Quality Monitoring
Build sustainable national capacity towards improved water quality testing and data management.
WQM has supported four countries (Cook Islands, Niue, Republic of the Marshall Islands and Vanuatu) through the provision of basic water testing equipment, in-country training on best laboratory practices and improved data management towards the establishment of a sustainable monitoring programme.
The water testing laboratories supported in the participating countries are from:
- Department of Water Works, Cook Islands
- Department of Health, Niue
- Majuro Environmental Protection Agency, Republic of the Marshall Islands
- Department of Water Resources, Vanuatu
Advice and support on water quality issues is also provided to other PICs upon request.
