Strategies for preventing and mitigating land-based sources of pollution to transboundary water resources in the Pacific region

Domestic contributions dominate the relatively mi-industrialized Pacific Region. Domestic wastewater disposal (or sewerage) and disposal of domestic solid waste remain critical issues for the region. In most areas the current management of these results is not sufficient to prevent deleterious effects on public
health, environmental quality, traditional lifestyles, and economic development. Marine water quality as well as fresh surface and ground water quality are affected. Based on the criteria for the establishment of priorities outlined in paragraph 22 et. seq. of the GPA this area, particularly wastewater disposal, should receive urgent attention on regional, national, and local levels.
