This 90 minute webinar is based on themes being discussed by IWRA’s Oceania chapter.  IWRA currently has regional and national chapters in China, India, Japan and Mexico.  These chapters provide an opportunity for extensive regional and local networking among IWRA members and a platform for them to exchange knowledge and experiences as well as discussing specific regional and local issues.

On this occassion, this session will focus Oceania’s unique water challenges and opportunities.  The panel will use a multidisciplinary lens to highlight the most urgent water challenges in the Oceania region and identify issues on the horizon that it needs to be prepared for.  The panel will also concentrate on questions around the impacts of climate change, community adaptation, and how to ensure a balance between human and environmental needs.  These discussions will engage too in sustainable water management, the theme of IWRA’s upcoming XVII World Water Congress in Daegu, Korea to take place from May 11th to May 15th, 2020.

Topics include:

  • Water Challenges Facing Oceania
  • Post Disaster WASH Risks Amongst Vulnerable Population – The Fiji Perspective
  • Small Community WASH Interventions in South Pacific Island Countries – Getting It Wrong While Trying To Do Right
  • Opportunities And Challenges in Managing Catchments Under Change



  • Scott McKenzie, PhD Candidate, University of British Columbia

The output from the webinar will be a multidisciplinary clarion call for (a) the most urgent water challenges in Oceania, and (b) those on the horizon that need to be prepared for.  This will be communicated through the development of a special issue journal and policy brief using the priorities identified from the panel and audience feedback.
