Taking cognizance of the current water issues facing the country, the National University of Science and Technology, NUST, through the Faculty of Applied Science and the Faculty of Industrial Technology will be hosting the 2nd water indaba. The indaba seeks to create a platform for information exchange between Municipalities, Catchment councils, Users and Researchers.
