Description

There is a growing realisation that South Africa requires a long-term, national drought policy and strategy to mitigate the risk of future occurrence of drought. Particularly, the Water Research Commission (WRC) has identified the need for science-based mechanisms and monitoring that will deliver timely information to decision-makers and so strengthen risk management measures and preparedness plans. As South Africa braces itself to weather increasing drought, the WRC calls on all experts in this domain to pool our expertise and collective wisdom to share and engage our science understanding of issues related to droughts as well as identify the respective roles we can play in assisting the nation in using evidence-based science to inform short and medium action plans.
 
Please confirm with Mrs Zagry Scholtz  zagrys@wrc.org.za<mailto:zagrys@wrc.org.za> before by 18 November 2015.
