In December of 2016, the Italian Ministry of Environment, Land and Sea (IMELS) granted $800K to the Republic of Palau to help build resilience to extreme drought events. The funding was received after Palau faced one of the most severe droughts ever in its recorded history, both in terms of duration and intensity.  Of the two main water sources supplying the population centers of Koror and Airai States, one went dry and had to be shut down, while the other experienced a reduction in water production by 87%.

The funded project, “Increasing Palau’s resilience to extreme drought events:  Taking action for long-term adaptation to the impacts of climate change”, is being coordinated Energy Grants Coordinator, Mr. Tutii Chilton, from the Ministry of Public Infrastructure, Industries & Commerce (MPIIC).  The main goal of this project is to build Palau’s resilience to extreme drought events.  With projections for more extreme weather events resulting from climate change, Palau must focus on adapting to those expected changes.  This work will help Palau build its resilience to future drought events.  The goal of this project falls in line with Palau’s Climate Change Policy, which calls for safe, resilient and disaster-prepared communities in Palau.

The project is now underway, and the first action will be finding and developing additional water sources for rural areas.  A feasibility study will be conducted to assess additional water sources and provide implementable recommendations for developing those water sources.  These recommendations will be carried out in the second part of the project.  The feasibility study will guide the development of new water sources, some of which will serve as pilots systems.

This is not the first grant awarded to Palau by the Italian Government to mitigate climate change effects. In 2015, Italy donated $300k to fund the project “Establishment of the First Nationwide Sanctuary in Palau: A long-term adaptation response to the impacts of Climate Change on Marine Ecosystem”.  These two, generous grants demonstrate the Government of Italy’s continued support. As global temperatures continue to rise these grants are imperative to improve Palau’s capacity to combat climate change related events.

Mr. Kmedrang Cameron Sengebau has been hired by Palau International Coral Reef Center (PICRC) as the new Aquarist. In this position Mr. Sengebau will assist with the maintenance of  all of the live exhibit tanks and general animal husbandry. Other responsibilities involve collecting aquarium organisms, and providing guided tours to school groups and other visitors.

In 2013, Mr. Sengebau graduated from Maris Stella School. He attended Xavier High School in Chuuk, FSM and graduated in 2017. Currently, Mr. Sengebau is enrolled at Palau Community College (PCC) where he is studying Liberal Arts. Mr. Sengebau eventually plans to transfer to a four year college where he either wants to major in Marine Science or Architecture. He hopes to take this time to continue gaining experience that will help narrow down his educational interests and career goals.

Aquarist work is not new to Mr. Sengebau. In 2015 and 2016 he interned at the Palau Aquarium under the supervision of Chief Aquarist, Asap Bukurrou.  As an intern Mr. Sengebau became very familiar with fish husbandry and tank maintenance. These internships not only provided Mr. Sengebau with 240 hours of work experience, but they also ignited a lasting passion for the field of conservation.  “I am excited for a fun learning experience that will provide me with memories to last a lifetime,” Mr. Sengebau says on his new position at PICRC.

In his free time Mr. Sengebau enjoys drawing and loves to be around the water. He spends his free time swimming, kayaking and frequently fishing with his family. Mr. Sengebau’s family is from Ngerbeched in Koror, Palau. He is the son of Fernando and Alison Sengebau. His father is the Director of the Bureau of Agriculture and his mother is the Clerk of Court at the Office of the Clerk of Courts.
