WISA (2012)

Between the 6th and 10th of May the Water Institute of South Africa (WISA) will be hosting their biennial conference (WISA 2012) at the Cape Town International Convention Center (CTICC). The WSUD project team will be presenting a number of related papers which may be of interest to you:

  • Taps and toilets count; people matter ( Community Water Supply and Sanitation 3 – 08/05/2012)
  • Charging for stormwater: The future for South Africa? (Urban Drainage – Wastewater and Stormwater – 09/05/2012)
  • An application of soft systems methodology to water and sanitation projects in Barcelona Informal Settlement (Urban Drainage – Wastewater and Stormwater – 09/05/2012)

On the 10th as some delegates leave to go back home and others go on site visits; UCT and the WRC will be hosting a closed workshop to define Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) in South Africa. While the workshop is only for invited delegates, we are interested in your views. Please visit the article about this workshop to see how you can contribute and / or give us your feedback/ideas.

The WISA 2012 Special Edition has just been published. Out of the 12 papers drawn from the conference, 2 were written by the WSUD group.
