Tørken i Cape Town

Temadag 20. juni 2018 på KU-SCIENCE


Vand i Byer netværket har i samarbejde med Det Natur- og Biovidenskabelige Fakultet på Københavns Universitet afholdt en temadag om håndtering af tørke.

Anledningen var besøg af forskere fra Cape Town Universitet i Sydafrika, der p.t. er ramt af den værste tørke nogensinde. Et centralt spørgsmål for dagen var, om byen kunne øge sin robusthed ved at have en bedre håndtering af regnafstrømning.
