Theme: Water Security and Food Security
SADC-GMI will participate at the 10th Water Research Horizon Conference to be held in Hannover, Germany from 18 to 19 June 2019. The Conference will bring together national and international scientists, practitioners and policy-makers with diverse backgrounds. Participants will engage in a multi-lateral and multidisciplinary exchange about the role of research in addressing the challenges of water and food security in the face of global climate change. Focus will be on the science needed to make informed decisions about water allocations and uses now and in the future. The vision is a world without hunger and a sufficient quantity and quality of water for the various needs of the people, without compromising the vitality of ecosystems. This perspective will guide the presentations as well as discussion panels that are organised in six thematic sessions.
SADC-GMI will be represented at the Conference by its Executive Director, Mr. James Sauramba who will also make direct inputs into some of the thematic sessions, thus spreading the SADC experience globally.
SADC-Groundwater Management Institute (SADC-GMI) as the Centre of excellence in promoting equitable, sustainable groundwater management and provide solutions to groundwater challenges across the SADC region will bring their regional expertise to the event.
