UNESCO Chair in Hydrogeology

The new water legislation in South Africa has paved the way for the Department of Water Affairs and Forestry (DWAF) to initiate the Unesco Chair in Hydrogeology based at UWC to address the capacity building urgently required for implementation of the Water Services Act of 1997 and Water Act of 1998, and to facilitate the advancement of water resources management, especially groundwater, which was neglected in past.

The ultimate goal of the Unesco Chair scheme is to establish a centre for groundwater education and research at UWC for benefit of South Africa, SADC and the African continent, to assist DWAF with implementation of the new water legislation and share expertise with the rest of the Africa continent.
