During her presentation Ms Sithole shared insights into the Eastern Cape and Free State Adaptation Materials Projects. “We are here today to learn from one another on how we are going to promote water related projects across municipalities. We hope that we have clear exchange of ideas on how we can implement them and move forward, said Sithole. 

Amanda Botes from Urban Earth shared the objectives of the Learning Exchange highlighting that the event provided an opportunity for Free State and Eastern Cape officials to learn more about effectively designing and implementing water saving awareness campaigns and projects.

Day one of the Learning Exchange saw officials engaged in informative presentations by EThekwini’s Water and Sanitation Unit and Water-Amanzi.
