Tuvalu Visit

This Project began 30 years ago. The objective was to provide access to the outer islands and make lasting safety improvements for the transfer of passengers from ship to the shore and significantly reduce the damage to cargo and to speed the transportation operations through improving the cargo packaging and handling. We enabled outer islands communities to manage environmental, health and other social impacts resulting from the Project. The Project review was carried out in 2006 and is known as the TTSTP.
