With floods causing havoc in several South African provinces earlier this year, it may be hard to believe that the looming water crisis that was debated in Parliament in 2008 remains an issue. Engineering Council of SA vice-president Thoko Majozi warns:
‘The maximum consumption that SA’s water resources can sustain will be reached in about five years.’
This should sound an alarm for companies and individuals that have not yet established comprehensive water strategies. Good water management is crucial for South Africa’s growth and development. Government, municipalities and private companies need to start working together on infrastructure now.
The Sustainable Water Resource Conference and Exhibition 2011 will serve as a platform for international thought leaders to interact and engage with leading national experts to present, debate and apply global thoughts and trends to the local environment in South Africa.
