SA's Water Security Depends On Renewed Interest From All - Expert

The future of South Africa’s water security will depend heavily on renewed government vigour after the May elections. This is the view of industry expert Peter Shepherd.

According to Shepherd, who is a partner and principal hydrologist at SRK Consulting, the country still has a long way to before it can deliver on the National Water Week theme of ‘Leaving No One Behind’.

“We have simply left it too late, by not planning far enough ahead and by failing to implement water projects when they have been planned,” Shepherd explains.
