Ken MacDonald, who is coordinating water and sanitation work in the Cook Islands, met with TIS to seek our interest in participating in the WatSan project steering committee. Ken’s position is funded by the NZAID Waste Management Initiative project. This project was designed by Geoff Mavromatis, Teariki Matenga and Andrew Dakers following NZAIDs recognition of sanitation issues via work done under the CIMRIS project. Ken has been on island since August 2011. TIS is delighted to participate in the steering committee and looks forward to working closely with MOIP and their WatSan team.
