17 - 23 March
The National Water Week is an awareness campaign by the Department of Affairs. It serves as a powerful campaign mechanism re-iterating the value of water, the need for sustainable management of this scarce resource and the role water plays in eradicating poverty and under-development in South Africa.
The awareness week campaign will take place from 17-23 March under the theme “Water is Life - 20 Years of Water Delivery for Social and Economic Development”.
The theme coincides with South Africa’s celebrations of 20 years of freedom and democracy. This momentous occasion presents an opportunity for South Africans to reflect on how freedom and democracy was achieved; the progress made in the past 20 years and how South Africans will work together to implement Vision 2030.
