South Africa's Western Cape Identifies Priority Areas for Drought Mitigation
Following a successful two-day drought dialogue, the Western Cape government has compiled a list of priority areas that will drive the province's drought mitigation strategies into the future.
The drought dialogue was hosted by Alan Winde, Minister of Economic Opportunities and Agriculture, and Anton Bredell, Minister of Local Government, Environmental Affairs and Development Planning.
The primary goal of the indaba was to develop strategies to mitigate the impact of the drought on the Western Cape's agriculture sector. Over 100 delegates, including farmers, analysts, national and provincial government officials, Agri-Western Cape, AFASA and academics took part in the workshop.
