Subject: RE: Project Progress 2006
I believe the single largest threat to our national watersheds currently (and into the future) is water quality degradation through: sewage discharge (including impact of storm water ingress); poor land use (including poisons getting into rivers e.g. sandriver fish kill near wakkerstroom as I type); insufficient skills, capacity and budget in local municipalities (particularly public works depts0.
therefore I would propose a theme around "Water Quality rehabilitation and conservation" and an agenda as follows:
1. Analyse current status of national watersheds and prioritise from most to least impacted and what the impacts are
2. Focus (where can YWG have most impact)
3. Align (how do we get consensus accross the interedted/affected parties and within YWG to ensure we fous all our might in one place thus ensuring maximum impact as apposed to the more distributed approach we've taken in the past)
4. Implement (state the action points, asign owners and penalties for non delivery)
this is a standard strategy development process, should I be in SA at the time I would be happy to facilitate.
