Water issues to be solved

2017-11-22 06:02

The water infrastructure investment summit which was planned for Thursday, 30 November, at the Sandton Convention Centre has been moved to 5 December.

It was revealed on www.­sanews.gov.za that the Department of Water and Sanitation has said that the postponement of the summit had been influenced by the schedules and availability of high-profile speakers, who have confirmed their partici­pation for the first week of December.

The summit is expected to feature investors, funders, project developers, policy ­makers, regulators and local government partners who will engage in a programme of action that aims to shift the water and sanitation sector investment landscape to a space that is open and enabling for investment and inclusive growth opportunities.

This comes at a time when sector role players are seriously considering the issue of the investment climate for water and sanitation in light of persistent drought and flood challenges.

The urgency surrounding ongoing service delivery needs and ageing water infrastructure was identified by the Department of Water and Sanitation and the Water Research ­Commission.
