The objective of the programme is to build sustainable national capacity for monitoring the quality of water (drinking, surface, ground and coastal). Specifically, the key components of the programme worked towards building local capacity on water quality monitoring through laboratory training, provision of equipment and improved data management; creation of a functioning water quality network; increased public awareness on water and health issues; and enabling government agencies to make informed decisions based on water quality data through pilots in the selected countries (Cook Islands, Marshall Islands, Niue and Vanuatu).
