GreenCape has collated some pertinent data points and developed a Cape Town Drought Timeline documenting the events that led up to the 2017/18 water crisis until the present day. The Timeline is an interactive and chronological resource that showcases important hydrological and regulatory events, as well as the public and private sector’s response to the drought. The purpose of the timeline is to assist researchers interested in the drought to source dates for key events, as well as for the people involved in the drought response activities to reflect on the events that led to the crisis and the lessons that can be learned from the experience.
This is a public resource that will be added to or edited on the basis of feedback received. If any errors are found or pertinent information is missing, please contact [email protected]
