Windhoek, Namibia
Event Date

On 9-11 November 2020, the 3rd SADC Groundwater Conference will be held in Windhoek, Namibia. This conference seeks to advocate for a more central and pronounced role for groundwater in the Water, Energy, Food and Ecosystems Nexus dialogue as a way of minimising shocks, risks and vulnerability to climate change. The conference will be offered parallel to the 8th Africa Water Week, and also align to the theme of that event.
