  • World Water Day Celebrations in Majuro, Marshall Islands

    World Water Day 2014 in the Marshall Islands

    The Marshall Islands and Embassy Majuro marked World Water Day this Saturday on March 22. With the 2013 drought still very much in everyone’s mind no one needs to tell the RMI how important, and precious, water is. This Saturday there was a walk from the College of the Marshall Islands to Delap Park. Later that morning there were demonstrations of a water catchment tank, solar still, and a reverse osmosis machine – as well as face painting, musical chairs, and a raffle. Organizations involved included the Marshall Islands Red Cross, IOM, USAID, and the RMI Government’s Office of Environmental Planning and Policy Coordination (OEPPC). U.S. Embassy Majuro was well represented during the day with Ambassador Armbruster and several staff and their families participating.

    Drought Update: OFDA surveys drought affected atolls in the RMI

    Ever since President Obama declared a drought in the Marshall Islands on June 14, 2013, international partners, including the U.S., have been working with the RMI government to make the Marshalls more resilient to drought. The Office of Foreign Disaster Assistance is doing a survey this week of the food situation on each atoll affected by drought. They are looking at the dietary diversity of food provided so far, the health of local crops, including trees, and our team is attending public meetings to see how the relief effort has been going. The team is led by Food Security Expert Adam Reinhart and includes the RMI’s Henry Capelle and Bart Deemer from the U.S. Embassy

    Fern Lehman, Biology teacher at the College of the Marshall Islands (CMI) is working on one more angle in understanding health and nutrition in the Marshall Islands. She and her class are mapping and quantifying the availability of fresh food in local stores. The study so far confirms that not many stores in Majuro sell fruit, for example. The lack of easy availability of fruit translates to a lack of fruit and vegetables in the diet, adding to the problem of obesity, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other non-communicable diseases that plague the Marshall Islands.
