Water sector desk


Market intelligence

GreenCape's Water Sector Desk's annual Market Intelligence Report is where investors and businesses will find snapshots and insights into the state of water resources and use, major policy and public sector programme activities and key green economy business opportunities.

GreenCape’s work in this space

The Western Cape is a water scarce region, with climate models predicting drier conditions in the future. There are no readily available surface water supply augmentation options. The region is also in the midst of a drought. Therefore the requirement to better manage existing water resources by reducing inefficiencies and improving re-use of existing resources is important to enable economic development.

GreenCape’s Water Sector Desk serves as a platform for the industry to access relevant information, source assistance in overcoming barriers, and connect to other stakeholders. This facilitation and networking role aims to improve the outcomes for green businesses working in the water sector, thereby increasing the availability and quality of water for all users in the Western Cape.
