During October – November 2006, a four-week period of duty travel covering the North and Central Pacific nations was undertaken to refine and rationalise the EDF9 work plans pertaining to the in-country KRA2 (Water) tasks and enhance the available synergies and support within the CLP (Water) programme. The mission initially targeted Palau (2 weeks), before moving on to Majuro, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI) (1 week) and completing in Nauru (1 week).
