The SADC Groundwater Management Institute today released their position paper on groundwater management in the SADC REGION. The purpose of the position paper, compiled by Dr Kevin Pietersen and Dr Hans Beekman of SLR Consulting, is to document the status of groundwater management in the region.
A draft version of the position paper was released on 15 September 2016 prior to our launch. It formed the basis of a workshop hosted by the SADC-GMI in Johannesburg on 21 September 2016. It representatives from each SADC member state and invited hydro-geologists provided feedback on hydro-geological activities in their country and area of operation. This information was then used to check the information in the position paper before it was finalised.
