Turton, A. 2008. Three Strategic Water Quality challenges that decision-makers need to know about and how the CSIR should respond. Keynote Address: A Clean South Africa. Presented at the CSIR Conference “Science Real and Relevant” 18 November 2008, Pretoria


Description:

Three Strategic Water Quality challenges that decision-makers need to know about and how the CSIR should respond.

Summary / Notes:

South Africa is one of the few countries in the world that has legislated for sustainability in their national Constitution. We therefore need to turn these noble words into actual deeds supported by robust science. To this end the CSIR has already invested heavily in what is known as Sustainability Science.
