15th Pacific Water and Wastewater Conference and EXPO

Kia orana Colleagues,

The 15th Pacific Water and Wastewater Conference and Expo will be held in Cook Islands from the 2nd to 7th September 2024.  The Secretariat and Infrastructure Cook Islands are excited to welcoming you.

Reflecting on the outcomes of our Water and Wastewater conference in Palau, in 2023, it is clear that we stand at a critical stage in our journey towards water resilience. The discussions and commitments made have highlighted the urgency of our mission to strengthen advocacy, collaboration and capacity building for sustainable and resilient water and sanitation.

For 2024, our theme will be “Water Resilience in the Pasifika……navigating the currents of change for a climate resilient region…”.  We encourage our community to commit to accelerating the enhancement and development of adaptive and innovative ways for water resilience in our Pasifika in the face of global changes.  It is vital that we come together as a diverse group of stakeholders, each playing a pivotal role in shaping a water-secure future.  We look forward to seeing our Ministers, Water Utilities, Government Representatives, Allied members or businesses, and our development partners come together with a shared vision. 

Our organization recognizes the importance of water not just as a resource, but as a fundamental human right. We are committed to taking bold steps, leveraging innovative technologies, and fostering partnerships that will help us achieve Sustainable Development Goal 6 – ensuring clean water and sanitation for all.

Let’s tackle these challenges together!

See you all in Cook Islands.


Pitolau Lusia Sefo-Leau (CEO – PWWA)
