Watervoogdyskap:So boer jy vooruit

Hierdie dokument is ’n opsomming van aanbiedings en besprekings op die WWF-SA se inligtingsessie oor waterbesparing wat einde 2017 op die Graham Beck-landgoed (naby Robertson) gehou is. Dit is gerig op produsente wat belang stel in die bestuur van risiko’s wat met waterskaarste verband hou, asook hoe om vooruit te boer deur middel van goeie boerderypraktyke en rentmeesterskap. WWF-SA werk nou saam met ’n aantal vennote gemoeid met watervoogdyskap en om grondbestuur te verbeter. Dit sluit in Landcare, Livinglands en CapeNature.

Drought facts Sheet

This Drought Fact Sheet presents key data and analysis on the current multi-year (2015- 2017) drought in the Western Cape Province, and its impacts on the agricultural sector. It also deals with actions taken and planned by government institutions and the sector to deal with the crisis. Apart from the climate change projection figures, all the figures presented in this Fact Sheet are updated on a monthly basis and the drought can thus be tracked monthly until the crisis has been relieved.
