Dialogues on Development 2016 saw seven professional engineers taking part in the adventure of travelling to Samoa to get a deeper understanding of the impact of engineering in development work.
The team visited various local organisations such as The NZ High Commission, Samoan Water Authority (SWA) and Scientific Research Organisation Samoa (SROS) over the period of seven days. The visits prompted discussion topics like appropriate technologies, effective distribution of aid and disaster relief readiness to name just a few.
In summary, the 2016 tour was very successful and the team even managed to make it into Samoa's local newspaper!
