National integrated water resource management diagnostic report : Papua New Guinea- Sustainable Integrated Water Resources and Wastewater Management in Pacific Island Countries

Water is essential for human, faunal and floral physiology. Water sustains life and is essential for climatic equilibrium, the maintenance of ecosystems, agriculture, industrial processing and hydropower. In many countries, increasing population, natural resource extraction, food production,
industrial activity and other land uses are producing diffuse and point source discharges which carry a wide range of contaminants into water bodies and affect the quality and quantity of water for other uses. This situation is caused by ineffective assessment, planning, utilisation and management of water by water resources management authorities, water supply and sewage disposal service providers and other sectoral users of water resources. There is an immediate and critical need for Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) in a catchment unit in order to ensure the sustainable use of the available water resources.
