Water security has been identified as a key concern in the Republic of Nauru's Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Management Plan (RONAdapt), the National Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Policy 2012, and the National Sustainable Development Strategy 2005-2025 (latest revision 2009).
Within the scope of the Global Climate Change Alliance: Pacific Small Island States (GCCA: PSIS) project, Nauru is implementing a climate change adaptation project titled: Expanding national water storage capacity and improving water security in Nauru. This project seeks to contribute to building resilience of communities in Nauru to climate change. The third key result area of the project is to build community awareness and capacity to improve water conservation.
The Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) Training is intended to help Nauru's households manage their water, including improving understanding of water security issues in the face of climate change and skills in monitoring of drinking water quality.
