The Ground Water Division was established in 1978 as a division of the Geological Society of South Africa with the objective of advancing the science and technology of groundwater. Our biennial groundwater conference has been pivotal in sharing knowledge about groundwater in South Africa, with this being our 16th three-day event. Our conferences have always centered around the science of groundwater, new technologies, networking, and meeting people who are passionate about groundwater, but this year we also want to focus on Water Use and Conservation, with an emphasis on groundwater.

  • Groundwater
  • Geology
  • Hydrogeology
Groundwater is used widely throughout the African continent, with millions of people being dependent on the availability of sufficient quantities of groundwater of acceptable quality. However, as was evident with the recent drought, as well as numerous other extreme events and hydrometeorological disasters such as flooding, topsoil erosion, surface water quality deterioration, and crop failure, groundwater often only provides immediate relief during disaster rather than being the primary source of potable water.

The 2019 African Exploration Showcase will focus on the metals and minerals critical to the technologies for a low carbon energy future: technology enabling commodities that are commonly referred to as“Critical Metals”.“Critical Metals” is not accurate in that commodities in this basket are not always metals (e.g. graphite); and ambiguous in that “critical” can refer to the significance of the commodity to a technology (i.e.the technology would not be viable without the commodity) as well as the security of supply of the commodity which is influenced by factors that change with time and locality. We prefer to use the term “Technology Commodities”.

Parts of Sub Saharan Africa makes little use of its groundwater resources, which contributes only 1% of total renewable water resource withdrawals for agriculture. Projected and continuing changes to the amount, intensity and predictability of rainfall in much of Southern Africa will lead to changes in the way the region views its groundwater resources.

THEME: Enhancing Water and Food Security through Sustainable Groundwater Development in the SADC Region. Online Conference: 24-26 November 2020 BACKGROUND Parts of Sub Saharan Africa makes little use of its groundwater resources, which contributes only 1% of total renewable water resource withdrawals for agriculture. Projected and continuing changes to the amount, intensity and predictability of rainfall in much of Southern Africa will lead to changes in the way the region views its groundwater resources. Increasing water scarcity will be particularly difficult for smallholder farmers who produce 90% of Africa’s food who haven not access to central water supply infrastructure. Currently,
