Demand Management and Conservation Project (Federated States of Micronesia) The lack of sustainable freshwater and increasing demands on freshwater resources was identified as amongst some the primary constraints to development of the South Pacific (Reference: Forum Secretariat Regional Strategy Document 1997). At that time in the order of 50% of the water that is taken from rivers, stream and groundwater in Pacific countries never reaches the user. And of the water that does reach the user a significant proportion is wasted through poor usage practices.The goal was to reduce wastage of freshwater through good demand management and conservation practices by water suppliers and water users in selected Pacific island countries. This would in turn make more water available for the environment enhancement and for future generations. Water and Sanitation (WS) Project 1999
