Message from PWWA CEO

Dear Members,

 “Resilience and Water security”

 PWWA, along with the Water Authority of Fiji, is honored to co-host the 13th PWWA Annual Conference and the 6th Ministerial Meeting of Water Ministers from the 14th – 18th November 2022 in Denarau Island, Fiji.  PWWA expresses its sincere appreciation to Dr Amit Chanan, CEO of WAF for offering  and securing his Government’s approval to host this year’s event, at such short notice.  We are confident WAF will ensure we all have a worthwhile experience not only technically but socially and culturally in the beautiful Fiji Islands and at the Sofitel at Denarau Island!

 As this will be the first conference after 2019 in Vanuatu due to border restrictions from the COVID19 pandemic , we are looking forward to welcoming all the familiar and new faces from around the Pacific after this long break,  to interact with each other face to face, share knowledge, challenges, success stories and learn from each other.  Our theme for this year is “Resilience and Water Security”.

 During the week we will have a Ministerial Forum, the Young Water Professionals Program, the technical conference with a menu of thematic  presentations, an EXPO, the Members Annual General Meeting, site visits and special events where you will be able to join and engage in and be part of.

 We look forward to seeing  you all there!

Sincerely,

Pitolau Lusia Sefo Leau

PWWA Chief Executive Officer

7 fun facts about Fiji you need to know | Jetstar

 

 
 

We are responsible for providing access to quality drinking water and wastewater services to over 154,000 residential and non-residential metered customers in the urban areas of Fiji and also setting up water supply systems in rural areas.

Our current water and wastewater network constitutes more than 4932 kilometres of pipes, and we supply more than 134,000 megalitres of treated water annually to homes and businesses all across Fiji.

Our service covers 18,274 square kilometres of the 332 islands in the Fiji archipelago, of which 110 are inhabited. As of 2020, we are in our 10th year of operation.

Knowing that over 829,110 Fijians, comprising thousands of families and businesses around Fiji, rely on us for their essential daily need for water, we take our service and mandate very seriously.

Access to clean water and sanitation has been listed as goal number 6 under the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The World Water Organisation has highlighted this year, where 785 million people lack access to safe water. 

Another 144 million are dependent on surface water to meet their basic needs. 266 million hours are spent by girls and women fetching for water daily. The global water crisis accounts for 260 billion US dollars lost each year equivalent to time spent in gathering water or seeking safe sanitation services. 

The importance of ensuring Water and Wastewater services to all Fijians is reflected in the 20-year Fijian National Development Plan. The NDP provides a national framework to ensure progressive steps are taken in ensuring continued services of Water and Wastewater. The 2013 Fijian constitution in sections 35 and 36 stipulates that access to sanitation and clean drinking water is a basic human right. 

The manner in which water is utilised in Fiji underlines the need for work by Fiji, as a whole, to address our Tariff Structure and further create awareness for water conservation. There is much work for WAF to do, to become a ‘Utility of the Future’. 

Our first goal, which is reflected in this plan, is to get the basics right. The first three years of this plan will see a consolidation of both assets and operations. This is reflective of the global financial decline, the current state of our existing assets and our culture. 

Our Strategic Plan will address all three elements of assets, culture and finances. These three key strategic deliverables are broken down to five core strategic goals. How these core strategic goals are delivered on the ground is represented in our Annual Business Plans and Personal Development Plans. 

Our key goal is to ensure continuity in providing effective water and wastewater services to all Fijians for generations to come.
