Kick-Off Workshop October 2017
On October 17th & 18th the iWaGSS kick-off workshop took place in Phalaborwa. In addition to the German partners, numerous local partners and interested parties (in total over 40 participants), including representatives of the Kruger National Park (SANPark) and the department of Water and Sanitation (DWS) and the Water Research Commission (WRC) participated. The agenda comprised, on the one hand, the work packages of the iWaGSS project and, on the other hand, related projects and measures of South African organizations. Based on the number of participants, the qualitative contributions to discussions and dialogues, it became clear that the interest of the local participants in the iWaGSS project is very high. At the same time it became clear that the experience and knowledge of the South African participants will be of great importance for the iWaGSS project.
