The first ever Israel South Africa Water Week took place in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban earlier this month. Top experts on water scarcity and over a dozen Israeli companies were joined by South African partners, NGOs and high ranking members of national and provincial governments in full day sessions that focused specifically on solutions for water scarcity in South Africa.
World leading hydrologist Prof Eilon Adar spoke in great detail about the technologies that Israel has successfully developed and now utilises in their journey from water scarcity to water abundance, and how these technologies could be applied within the South African context. Over 350 meetings between Israeli and South African businesses and organisations have taken place during #israelSAwater week.
