The 19th WaterNet/WARFSA/GWP-SA Symposium on Integrated Water Resources Development and Management will be held under the theme “Integrated Water Resources Development and Management: Managing Water for the Future in a Changing Environment in Eastern and Southern Africa”. The sub-themes of the Symposium have been aligned to those of the Southern African Development Community (SADC) Research Agenda under the Regional Strategic Action Plan on Integrated Water Resources Development and Management Phase IV, and thereby contribute to its main objective which is promoting evidence-based implementation of SADC water programmes and projects through multi- and interdisciplinary research, and synthesis of existing and new information, which will lead to a realisation of SADC developmental goals.
UNU-FLORES PhD Researcher Sekela Twisa is presenting on “Seasonal and Annual Rainfall Variability and their Impact on Rural Water Supply Services” in the session on “Surface and Groundwater Resources Management and Urbanisation”.
The Symposium promotes 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.
