Introduction

The National Groundwater Strategy (NGS) 2016 is a detailed review of the Groundwater Strategy (2010) managed by the Department of Water and Sanitation. However, the GS (2010) lacked sufficient public consultation and stakeholder participation. The NGS aims to improve the recognition of the strategic value and use and protection of groundwater in South Africa. As provided by the National Water Act, 1998 (Act no 36 of 1998) in Chapter 2 that strategies should be developed to facilitate the proper management of water resources. The NGS is subdivided into chapters with each consisting of current groundwater challenges and recommended actions.

National Groundwater Strategy Status

The project to develop the National Groundwater Strategy is still ongoing. Details of the current status of the NGS project are also available.
