Drought and sea level rise caused by climate change will drastically effect water security in Pacific Island Countries. On 25 July, Moerk Water again contributed to the in-person training program run by the Pacific Climate Change Centre (PCCC) ‘Strengthening climate resilience and safe water access in rural areas in the Pacific” aimed at improving local capacity and enhance climate resilience to meet this threat.

The third round of the PCCC training program was held in Majuro, the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI). Moerk Water engineers delivered two training sessions as part of the  training program administered by the PCCC.  The two seminars Moerk Water delivered were titled “The Cost Effective Maintenance of Water Systems in Remote Areas” and “Renewable Energy Design for Water Systems”. These seminars were attended by participants from Palau, Kiribati, Nauru, the Federated States of Micronesia and RMI.

Moerk Water has also been part of the previous two PCCC training sessions and will continue to share their extensive experience in the Pacific in both the design and implementation of sustainable water solutions to ensure that solutions can be found for the growing Pacific water crisis.
