Welcome to Gaabo-Motho

Saving our planet, lifting people out of poverty, advancing economic growth... these are one and the same fight. We must connect the dots between climate change, water scarcity, energy shortages, global health, food security. Solutions to one problem must be solutions for all. "Ban Ki-Moon"

Water the source of life

It is a precondition for human, animal and plant life as well as an indispensable resource for the economy. Water also plays a fundamental role in the climate regulation cycle. Protection of water resources, of fresh and salt water ecosystems and of the water we drink and bathe in is therefore one of the cornerstones of environmental protection in South Africa. The stakes are high and the issues transcend national boundaries.  Due to the shortage and poor water quality existing in the country, it has become essential for the monitoring and control of Surface water and Ground Water. Efficient water management requires new knowledge and implementable solutions, as well as synthesis of current experiences from different parts of the world. The primary objective of Gaabo-Motho is generation of new knowledge, synthesis and application of existing knowledge and dissemination of this information.
