Project Description

For 14 years, SA has been saddled with rolling blackouts due to a host of problems at power utility Eskom. Coupled to that is the crippling drought in Nelson Mandela Bay and dwindling water resources in large parts of SA. With these basic services under threat, how does SA begin to talk about development and growth? Join us as we host an important discussion to not only understand the enormity of the challenges we are facing as a country, but also how we can track a way forward.

Join in on the conversation with Facilitator, Ms Siphokazi Tau Centre for Women and Gender Studies, Nelson Mandela University, along with Funzani Mtembu Development Economist, Wits University, Veli Mbele Department of Science, Technology and Innovation, Dr Gisela Kaiser Vice President at Water Globe Consultants and Tandokazi Nquma-Moyo Non-Executive Director : Methano Group & Published Scientist. Register here for this free virtual event hosted by The Herald and CANRAD of Nelson Mandela University.
