Extension of Deadline for Abstract Submission: 23rd WaterNet/WARFSA/GWPSA Symposium
October 19, 2022 - October 21, 2022
The 23rd WaterNet/WARFSA/GWP-SA Symposium will be held in Rustenburg, South Africa at the Sun City Resort, 19 – 21 October 2022 under the theme Integrated Water Resources Management for Sustainable Development in East and Southern Africa. The North-West University is the lead host of the 23rd Symposium.
The Symposia have been held annually in the Eastern and Southern African regions for the past 22 years to promote interaction among policymakers, academics, practitioners from water and related sectors, and cooperating partners. Together, they identify regional issues, gaps, and priorities that require further research and support. Great emphasis will be placed on integration of knowledge, particularly involving scholars from the natural and social sciences.
The sub-themes of the symposium have been aligned to the themes of the SADC Water Research Agenda under the Regional Strategic Action Plan on Integrated Water Resources Development and Management Phase IV, whose main objective is:
• Promoting evidence-based implementation of SADC water programs and projects through multi- and inter-disciplinary research, and synthesis of existing and new information, which will
lead to a realization of SADC developmental goals.
Policymakers, academics, practitioners from water and related sectors, and cooperating partners are invited to register for and attend the symposium and make use of this opportunity to listen and debate findings from presentations focused on the different sub-themes.
Authors wishing to present the results of their work should submit their abstracts targeting the topics detailed in the link here.
The deadline for abstract submission has been extended to 30 June 2022.
