The State of Namibia’s Water Security: Assessment and Proposed Interventions” – Lecture Announcement – 1 & 16 June, 2016
Dr. Kuiri Tjipangandjara, GWPSA’s Chairperson will be discussing “The State of Namibia’s Water Security: Assessment and Proposed Interventions”. The lectures will be held on 2 ^& 16 June, 2016 and attempt to quantitatively assess the state of water security in three regions in Namibia, namely the Central Area, North Central Area and Central Coastal Area. The results show that Namibia’s water security for the three areas varies from low to very low – ranking between 50-61%. Guided by the results from the respective Areas, the intervention options were identified, compared and contrasted.
It promises to be an interesting discussion on the circumstances of the unique situation of the selected regions, based on population size, contribution to GDP, level of Industrialisation, potential economic growth, implications of water supply disruptions, etc.
The lecture is being organised by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Namibia University of Science and Technology.
