Future Water Symposium (2018)

14 Sep 2018 - 06:00

UCT’s Future Water Institute hosted the Future Water Symposium on 14 September 2018. The theme this year was ‘Regenerative Water Futures: Tensions in Resource Scarcity’. Amanda Mkhonza from the Institute of Marine and Environmental Law attended the Symposium and facilitated a round table discussion on ‘Water and the Law’. Symposium attendees brainstormed ideas on future water law developments that would be necessary in securing South Africa’s water supply, whilst raising practical suggestions for effective water resource management. Various students enrolled in IMEL’s postgraduate environmental law programmes participated and acted as rapporteurs for the round table discussions. All ideas emanating from these roundtable discussions are being synthesised into a report which should be published in early 2019.
