Welcome to the Western Cape Department of Agriculture’s single point of entry to drought related information for farmers. This portal aims to provide you with up to date, practical and useful support in the form of research, toolkits, lessons learnt, current news and drought-related links. The Western Cape is in the midst of the harshest drought in its history. We all have to adapt and change our behaviour to mitigate the drought and save this critical resource. Sharing of information and learning from one another keeps us knowledgeable and empowered. This drought information portal will be updated regularly. Make sure to bookmark and share it.


Access to water is your right. Saving water is your responsibility. Let’s conserve this precious resource better together.
