Survey of the Regional Distribution and Status of Asbestos-Contaminated Construction Material and Best Practice Options for its Management in Pacific Island Countries Report for the Cook Islands

This report covers the Cook Islands component of a survey of the regional distribution and status of asbestos-contaminated construction materials, and best practice options for its management, in selected Pacific island communities. The objectives of the survey are summarised as follows:
 To assess the status of, and management options for, asbestos throughout the Pacific region; and
 To develop recommendations for future management interventions, including a prioritised list of target locations.
The work was carried out by a consortium led by Contract Environmental Ltd and Geoscience Consulting (NZ) Ltd, under a contract to the Secretariat of the Pacific Regional Environment Programme (SPREP), with funding provided by the European Union.
This report presents the information gathered for the Cook Islands during a field visit undertaken by Dirk Catterall and Huw Williams between 23 July and 1 August 2014. The visit was organised in collaboration with the Cook Islands’ National Environmental Service and the Cook Islands Infrastructure Corporation.
