Johannesburg, South Africa

Following 19 successful conferences, the 20th WaterNet/WARFSA/GWPSA Symposium will be held in Johannesburg, South Africa at the Indaba Hotel, Spa & Conference Centre in Fourways from 30th October – 1 November 2019. The theme for this year is Integrated Water Resources Development and Management: Leaving No One Behind for Water Security in Eastern and Southern Africa. The University of Johannesburg is the host institution.


The annual symposia is a platform for water professionals to share advances in research and education related to Integrated Water Resources Management. It is also a place to discuss new opportunities and development towards the integrated management of our scarce fresh water resources. We thus call upon all water sector professionals, policy makers, and international cooperating partners alike to use the 20th Symposium as a platform to build partnerships and strengthen cooperation for Integrated Water Resources Management in Eastern and Southern Africa and beyond. Oral, poster and special sessions presentations are invited.
