GRoW-Project go-CAM is happy to announce its “Water Webinar” featuring water practitioners from Germany and South Africa, taking place on 5 July 2021 from 10h00 to 14h30 (CEST). The webinar will provide new perspectives on the topic of climate change and water security in cities and towns, based on the project’s experience in the Buffalo City Metropolitan Municipality, South Africa.

The World Economic Forum ranked water crises as number one in its 2015 assessment of global risks, with potential to cause damaging economic and social impacts across entire countries and sectors. What does it mean for cities, towns and regions who will feel the direct impacts of climate change?
