The recent Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) conference at which TCTA actively participated as it has done in previous years showcased a range of innovative solutions for critical water challenges facing South Africa. The biennial event, held at the Durban International Convention Centre, brought together over 1,500 delegates, including academics, professionals, industry experts and lawmakers.

For TCTA, this presented an opportune moment to cement the institution’s brand in the sector. It was also an opportunity to introduce the services of the organisation to new players in the field. TCTA’s visibility at the conference was through an exhibition stand, which was visited by many stakeholders and delegates who have a keen interest in the work that TCTA does.

Visitors to the stand included Water and Sanitation Minister Senzo Mchunu, who spoke highly of TCTA and praised the organisation for the recent donation of houses in Kgubetswana last month. “Your organisation is doing great work, and the department is proud of your contribution to the sector,” said the minister while speaking to TCTA staff at the exhibition

The event, which took place from 12 to 14 June, also saw TCTA participating in several sessions. The organisation was represented by Richard Holden, who presented his piece entitled “Whose Sh*t is it Anyway”. The discussions revolved around the role of municipalities and householders in managing sanitation.


In closing, WISA CEO Lester Goldman emphasised that water is one of the greatest challenges facing South Africa and its neighbours. He stated that governments, stakeholders, partners, and public participants must come together to find innovative ways of managing water to ensure a sustainable and robust water supply for our growing urban populations. “Effective* water management is only possible when interrelated factors and needs are considered,” he said.
