Message from the Chairperson - Conference on Freshwater Governance for Sustainable Development 5 -7 November ,Champagne Sports Resort , Drakensberg.

Backed by the world’s leading organisations and institutions, our conference will cover a variety of topics to be presented by experts in the field of water governance. We have diversified the programme to allow for scientific exchange, panel discussions, open debates, youth and young water professionals participation, not to mention the gender special session mainly pertaining to pushing the score for the Africa Gender Strategy.

The private sector is now more active in water issues than ever before and is featuring in more than one session. Cooperation on shared water resources is critical, especially in water-scarce regions where the upstream and downstream impacts of consumption and pollution are magnified due to the global grand challenges including climate change. Transboundary shared river basins and aquifer systems continue to present opportunities for cooperation and joint water resource development within as well as between countries. The International Conference on Fresh Water Governance for Sustainable Development aims to address these opportunities and challenges amongst others.
