Join the Geography Society, alongside Leo Quayle from the Institute of Natural Resource, to hear about water scarcity in Africa. This talk will cover work happening in four areas to protect their water security. In these regions, high water runoff is critically important for supplying basic human needs, livelihoods, commercial scale food production and for economic development. The talk will also consider the value of these catchments alongside explaining the current and threats to these areas.
