International Groundwater Conference, 19 – 21 September 2011


The International Groundwater Conference will be held from 19 to 21 September 2011 at the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) International Convention Centre in Pretoria. This international conference is organised by the Ground Water Division (GWD) of the Geological Society of South Africa (GSSA) in association with the International Association of Hydrogeologists (IAH) and will accommodate the Biennial Conference of the South African Ground Water Division and the IAH AGM, Council and various Commission Meetings. The conference and the meetings will be an excellent opportunity for the international scientific community and scientists and water managers of southern Africa to meet and discuss the future of groundwater in a quickly changing world.

Who should attend

The conference is aimed at groundwater scientists, managers and planners, hydrologists and geotechnical engineers but will also appeal to water professionals, environmental scientists, journalists, economists, public-sector officials and others working at the front line of service delivery, natural resource management and governance. All members of the Ground Water Division in South Africa and members of the International Association of Hydrogeologists worldwide are urged to attend.

This joint international conference presents a tremendous opportunity for transboundary dialogue and collaboration. Speakers will include international and local experts in hydrogeology.
