Pacific island countries have progressed at varying rates on the water and sanitation related Millennium Development Goals MDG. This corresponds to about half the global coverage rate. To make matters worse, rapid population growth, increasing urbanization, damage to water catchments resulting from deforestation, poor waste management practices leading to water pollution, and climate change are expected to exacerbate the challenge of providing access to safe water.
The proportion of households with access to improved sanitation varies greatly among the small Pacific island countries. Sanitation systems in the Pacific islands rely principally on pit toilets and septic tanks.
Contamination of water supplies caused by inadequate sanitation, along with other sources of pollution, low water availability and the use of poor quality groundwater as drinking water, leads to outbreaks of diarrhoea, cholera and other infectious diseases, such as hepatitis and typhoid.
Installation of affordable sanitation systems and the introduction of social programmes focused on behavioural change are needed in small island communities to improve water quality and human health.
The figures on water supply and sanitation clearly demonstrate the need for regional improvement to meet the MDGs. However, the lack of priority on water and sanitation issues in national development strategies, along with the inadequacy of budgetary resources allocated to the water sector, jeopardize the progress made by Pacific island countries as regards the MDGs.
Forecasts indicate that in most parts of the Pacific region, problems resulting from increasing demand for water and increasing pollution of water may be much more significant than the expected effects of climate change Hay, The Mauritius Declaration of highlighted water management and water access issues in Pacific island countries.
Vulnerability to water natural hazards Pacific island countries are susceptible to floods, droughts and cyclones. Droughts are particularly dangerous as they affect the most vulnerable communities, such as those occupying marginal environments ESCAP, Among the most widely used coping strategies are measures taken by individual households to conserve freshwater supplies and seek substitutes.

Ideally, water management plans should address the inevitability of climate variability so that droughts do not necessarily require emergency response SOPAC, This necessitates adequate hydrological data for analysis and design, as well as financial resources.
But there is a significant lack of national capability for conducting water resource assessments in the South Pacific countries, and capacity building is needed. Floods are also a significant hazard, especially in high Pacific island countries of volcanic origin. The hazard is greatest when the islands are within the zone affected by cyclones and associated extreme precipitation.
Yet in many island countries, flood forecasting systems are either non-existent or not functioning due to poor maintenance. Tropical cyclones are more frequent in the western and central Pacific than in the eastern Pacific.
The very high wind speeds of cyclones are often accompanied by extremely intense rainfall and storm surges, which can destroy buildings and coral reefs, damage crop trees, cause coastal flooding and erosion, and pollute water supplies.
It is considered likely that climate change will result in increased cyclone wind speeds and even more damaging storm surges.
Several island countries have taken initiatives to develop disaster management plans, often in response to particular disasters. To conclude, small island developing states in the Pacific face many constraints, including their small size and remoteness, the limited availability of freshwater, increasing population and insufficient human and financial resources.
Together with East Asia and Pacific, these three regions comprise billion of poor population (Multidimensional poverty Index, ). It means limited access to all kinds of resources, from food and shelter to education and even sanitation.
