The Pacific Odyssey

Drinking water access challenge in he pacific

The Pacific Ocean, the largest on the planet, covers a third of Earth’s total surface. The South Pacific Ocean specifically counts about 30 000 islands,
22 countries and more than 40 million inhabitants at the heart of the global climate as well as the development and economical challenges. Scattered, remote and heterogenous area, the south Pacific Ocean has one terrible common challenge shared by all islands: the drinking water access.

What is Kori Odyssey?

We envision a society in which everybody has access to a constantly healthy, clean and affordable drinking water.

Most of the current water challenges we face have technical solutions, however, it requires a specific integration to local socio-economic contexts to be sustained, particularly for vulnerable communities.

Kori Odyssey is developing and delivering tailored impactful water access programs: each drop counts!
