Abstract

This report concludes that the Tarawa Urban Futures Project, based on the information currently available, represents a viable opportunity for major urban resettlement on Tarawa which will represent an exemplary landmark project of its type across the Pacific Island States. Again on the basis of information and investigation to date, the project can be successfully delivered embracing the philosophies of • Integrated Sustainability • Cultural appropriateness • Economic viability A staged project is encouraged whereby, under an approved Conceptual Master Plan, work can be progressively undertaken at a rate that meets government priorities, demand and available funds. Each individual stage however will be complete in its own right. The Temwaiku Urban Development, when complete, could house approximately 15,000 residents in 1,800 dwellings (not including the use of the fish farm precinct). On currently buildable land (Stage 1) the developed area would hold 11,000 people on 1,200 lots.
