News Special edition of the LoGo Water newsletter on symposium "Water for Local Needs", Benoni, South Africa, July 2007

LoGo Water is an EU Funded project that brings together African and European researchers along with local governments from Southern Africa, for jointly contributing to support local governments to improve water resources management in the region.  

This issue of the newsletter is a special edition focused on the symposium  "Water for Local Needs-The Contribution of Local Governments to Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM)", that took place in Benoni, South Africa, on 9 and 10 July 2007.

The event was a forum for local governments and other relevant stakeholders in the SADC region to discuss concepts, practices and benefits of Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) within the context of local government performance. Special attention was paid to exploring feasible ways and means on how local governments can advance their involvement in IWRM.

The newsletter will soon be available also in French and Portuguese; the translated versions will be downloadable from the website, where you can find more about the project.
