Who Are We?

The Water Institute of Southern Africa (WISA) brings together experts from a wide range of disciplines to meet, discuss, plan for and present solutions for a sustainable water future in the region. Water is one of the greatest challenges facing South Africa and its neighbours – so governments, stakeholders, partners and public participants must come together to find innovative ways of managing water to ensure a sustainable and robust water supply for our growing urban populations. Effective water management is only possible when interrelated factors and needs are considered.

WISA is proud to be the organisation that is championing that mission. With more than 80 years since WISA was founded in 1937, we are proud to have grown from strength to strength to become the reputable body we are today.
