The South African Local Government Association (SALGA) in collaboration with City of EThekwini is hosting the City Water Managers Forum on the 2-3 September in Durban. The forum is constituted by heads of all 8 Metros responsible for the management of water and sanitation.  The 8 Metros serve about 22% of South Africa’s population. The primary purpose of the forum is amongst others for the heads to reflect on issues that affected the delivery of water and sanitation in respective Metros, share good and bad practices and importantly to explore innovative solutions in ensuring delivery of sustainable water and sanitation. Importantly in sustaining continuous access to sustainable water and sanitation Metros.

Topics to be discussed at the forum includes amongst others, how Metros are addressing delivery of services in unplanned settlements, water security measures and conceptualisation of project(s) that seek to reduce cost of running the business whilst at the same time improve revenue. These issues will be supplemented by visits to innovative sanitation technology sites currently piloted by EThekwini municipality through by the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation re-invent the toilet programme.
