As for the water component, the first session of hydrometry companionship took place last week. This action is part of the capacity building of the services of New Caledonia, French Polynesia and Wallis and Futuna for the acquisition of data required for water management. Three agents from the Wallis and Futuna Environment Department and one agent from the French Polynesia Equipment Directorate (DEQ) met to exchange on the monitoring of water resources, especially the surface and groundwater resources. The Department of Veterinary, Food and Rural Affairs (DAVAR) of New Caledonia welcomed the agents to follow and exchange with the teams in charge of collecting and processing limnimetric (surface water), piezometric (groundwater) and rainfall data.
