Water infrastructure and technology needs urgent investment by the government to ensure the resource is being stored and used efficiently, says Amnesty International SA.

This as a supply deficit of about 17% is expected by 2030.

“SA’s water scarcity continues to be exacerbated by a lack of investment in infrastructure or technology, and the climate crisis, yet the government is doing very little to mitigate the consequences this will have for everyone living in the country,” Amnesty SA's executive director Shenilla Mohamed said.
