Vulnerability to climate change, remoteness and a lack of water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) infrastructure create a challenging environment for Kiribati.
Despite a good base knowledge of the importance and health implications of hygiene practices in South Tarawa, practice remains poor. Live & Learn, working with local and international experts, intends to improve practices through the methods of behaviour change and by creating future strategies on WASH, climate and disaster resilience.
The Kiribati Water, Sanitation and Hygiene Awareness Program is managed and overseen by Plan International Australia in partnership with Live & Learn Kiribati and Live & Learn Australia, with funding from the Asian Development Bank in partnership with the Government of Kiribati.
