South Africa has committed to working towards the SDG Goals, and ground water is extensively featured in SDG 6. As the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS), we have been working on the ground water indicators for SDG 6.3 (By 2030, improve water quality by reducing pollution, eliminating dumping and minimizing release of hazardous chemicals and materials, halving the proportion of untreated wastewater and substantially increasing recycling and safe reuse globally Quality) and SDG 6.6 (By 2020, protect and restore water-related ecosystems, including mountains, forests, wetlands, rivers, aquifers and lakes).
We invite you to the Ground Water SDG 6.6.1 Future Indicator Workshop which focuses on ground water indicators that we as the ground water sector think is important to report on in the future, and how we can approach these indicators together. Please find the draft programme attached, and details below:
