Welcome to the Water Resources Division Page
Water is a social, economic and environmental good. As a resource it is finite and vulnerable. The transition from traditional subsistence living to a cash-based economy has resulted in a somewhat improved standard of living which together with a growing population and increasing development activities has put significant pressures and demands upon our limited water resources. These competing and sometimes opposing pressures and demands are difficult to manage, and it is precisely this reason coupled by the vulnerability of Samoa as a small and isolated island state, that we urgently need to act now before it is too late.
