South Africa signs water pact with Denmark

3 October 2015

Pretoria – Danish Minister of Environmental and Food, Eva Kjer Hansen and South African Water and Sanitation Minister Nomvula Mokonyane signed a Memorandum of Understanding.

The MoU, signed in Johannesburg on Monday, is set to strengthen cooperation in the water sector, especially with the Danish private sector partnering with local businesses.

The Danish are global leaders in water efficiency and waste water management. The signed memorandum will present the South African water sector with an opportunity to learn from the best.  

Through the agreement, the sector will learn about innovative technological solutions, land and water management systems and skills development.

Other areas to be explored include support to local government in terms of management, investment opportunities, raising human capital, skills and knowledge transfer.

Minister Mokonyane said she is delighted at the breakthrough as this means development for not only the country’s water sector but for the country as a whole.  

She said there is great potential for South African-Danish partnerships in the water sector, which will help alleviate the current challenges faced by the country.  

“Communities will be uplifted and jobs will be created, and both countries will greatly benefit,” she said. – SAnews.gov.za
