In Seychelles, our IWRM demonstration project is based in the island of La Digue, situated some 60 km from the island of Mahé. La Digue covers an area of 14 km2 and hosts the third most important population centre of the Republic of Seychelles. The island is a popular tourist destination. The demonstration project aims to demonstrate protection of coastal gravel aquifers through integrated land and water management measures (water demand management, land use, flood management, and water quality control) on the island of La Digue. The island has being experienced increasing pressure on water demand and high land use pressures.
