Pacific Resource Infrastructure Facility (PRIF)

Established in 2008 to provide technical assistance, research and knowledge products on key infrastructure issues to Pacific island countries

and as a coordination facility for the principal development partners in the region.

Nauru

NAURU Economic Infrastructure Strategy and Investment Plan - 2011

In the decade to 2005, financial mismanagement and government missteps caused Nauru incomes and living standards to plunge. In 2005, Nauru embarked on a program of change, including the development of a 20 year National Sustainable Development Strategy (NSDS).  The NSDS and its 2009 update, aim for Nauru to achieve growth by building on economic infrastructure and advancing structural reforms.

National Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Implementation Plan

Water, sanitation and hygiene are vital to current survival and future development in Nauru. The issues outlined in Section 10 are complex and varied and involve much more than just infrastructure. The processes used to develop Nauru’s National Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Policy and this Implementation Plan revealed a large number of major challenges that must be addressed. The tasks required are numerous and cut across administrative jurisdictions.

SOPAC National Integrated Water Resource Management Diagnostic Report

Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM) offers a systematic approach to address the sustainable development, allocation and monitoring of water resources for Pacific island Countries (PICs). The key concept of IWRM is that it provides a framework to integrate societal, economic and environmental considerations in water resource management. It recognises that all water use is interdependent and therefore should be managed in an integrated manner.

Groundwater Survey Pacific

Information used to improve understanding, access, supply and protection of freshwater resources in Nauru

  • Where wells are located and how they are constructed
  • What they are used for and the reliance placed upon them.
  • Baseline well water quality.
  • Assess risk to wells from contamination – sanitary survey.
  • Develop GIS database for use in future water resource management and assessment

Nauru Port Pre-Feasibility Study

This Report presents the detailed assessment prepared by the Study Team for the Nauru Port Pre-Feasibility Study.

Although potential options to upgrade the port facilities at Nauru have been previously investigated by various development partners, no improvements at the port have been progressed in recent years and the state and operation of the existing port facility continues to present occupational health and safety issues, capacity limitations, and challenges to the import and export of goods and cargo.
