Rising to the Challenge

Communities in the Pacific region face a number of new challenges during an era of unprecedented social change. Major towns are growing rapidly as people leave rural areas in search of opportunities. There is an increase in informal settlements, where basic services such as water and sanitation are poor, and tension can arise over land shortages and tenure. Of those who remain in rural areas, many are hard to reach; essential services and basic education are often lacking.
