Press Release: Adapting to climate change: 700,000 litres of water for Lofeagai, Tuvalu

A cistern that can hold 700,000 litres of water has been gifted to the community of Lofeagai in Tuvalu under the Pacific Adaptation to Climate Change Project (PACC).

This will help build resilience and reduce vulnerability of the community when it comes to water shortages.  Last year Tuvalu went through one of its driest spells ever with very little rainfall over an 8 month period, bringing the country into a national state of emergency.
