National Water Resources Policy


The NWRP provides a framework for leadership and coordinated action in the supply of safe, adequate and financially, technically and environmentally sustainable water services to rural, outer island and urban communities in Kiribati and for the protection, conservation, sustainable use and efficient management of Kiribati's water resources. It is directed at improving the welfare and livelihood of I-Kiribati and represents the vision of the Government of Kiribati (GoK) for the water sector.

This policy concentrates on freshwater resources and their protection and foreshadows the development of complementary national sanitation policy. Implementation of the NWRP is addressed in the National Water Resources Implementation Plan (NWRIP).
