Theme: “My River . . . My Life”

The annual WeedBuster Week campaign spearheaded by the Department of Water Affairs’ Working for Water (WfW) Programme will be focused on aquatic weeds during WeedBuster Week 2010 in October.

The campaign aims to consolidate awareness, support and ownership of the ongoing effort in order to ensure that invasive alien plants (IAPs) and invasive aquatic weeds control initiatives in South Africa are effective and sustainable.
