GLOBAL SPEAKER LINE-UP

 

 

 

WATER IN AGRICULTURE

 

 

Water use in agriculture is at the core of any discussion of water and food security. Agriculture accounts for 70% of all water Withdrawals globally. Irrigated land is more than twice as productive as rain-fed cropland, yet the efficiency of water use in agriculture still looms large.

To help address the challenges and opportunities in water in agriculture, The Water Show Africa brings you the Water in Agriculture workshop.

 

 

WATER IN MINING

 

 

The water and mining space is highlighy competitive with several unique challenges and opportunities that can drive the sectors forward. The key is to generate actionable and practical solutions that are responsible and sustainable. This implies leadership, innovation and a deep understanding of technology and engineering. But above all, it implies the ability to build solid partnerships, overcome challenges and work towards a united, skilled and flourishing industry.

These sessions dive deep into the solutions and challenges of managing mine water in a water-scarce country with a turbulent past.
