The Sustainable Water Management Plan (hereafter referred to as “the Water Plan”) for the Western Cape Province was developed, following the recommendations made at the Water INDABA held in Cape Town during November 2009. Its development was undertaken collaboratively by the Western Cape Government and the National Department of Water Affairs: Bellville Regional Office. Short (1-5 years), medium (6-15 years) and long term (+16 years) actions to guide the implementation of projects / activities were developed, as a means towards achieving integrated and sustainable management of water in the Western Cape. The overall aim of the Water Plan is to guide sustainable water management towards meeting the growth and development needs of the region. Read more.
