Course Weather Smart for Inkomati - Usuthu Catchment Management Agency
Nelspruit (South Africa)
Inkomati - Usuthu Catchment Management Agency (IUCMA) is responsible for water management in South Africa across the basin of the Komati and Usuthu rivers. IUCMA and other CMA’s in South Africa invested in dashboards to streamline the weather and water management data more efficiently. The purpose of this modular course of nine days was to train employees of the IUCMA in water resource management combined with weather forecast and the use of the dashboards.
The Centre of Expertise is an initiative by eThekwini Water & Sanitation (EWS) in Durban and various Dutch partners. Under the general framework a series of pilot projects will be executed to showcase the implementation of new technologies and knowledge at EWS. For these individual pilot projects contribution and support from various partners will be combined. The four pilot projects above have been identified and executed, but many more ideas are waiting to be transformed into pilot projects in the near future.
