Making clean, potable water available to everyone is one of SA’s key priorities. South Africa is largely a semi-arid, water-stressed country. The country’s average rainfall of about 450mm a year is well below the world average of about 860mm a year.


South Africa has a National Water Resource Strategy, which was approved in September 2004. It describes how South Africa’s water resources will be protected, used, developed, conserved, managed and controlled in accordance with the requirements of the National Water Policy.


The South African government and Vietnam recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding on Water Cooperation.  


Other topics that feature prominently on the conference agenda include monitoring and control, water loss prevention, water quality and safety, investments and partnership opportunities.

Professionals in the industry will also get a chance to exhibit inventions and latest technologies. - BuaNews
