Information about the water situation in Cape Town

Dear ICL20 delegates

Information about the water situation in Cape Town
In the last three years the normally voluminous winter rains (mid-April to end of September) have decreased considerably, to the point where we now have water restrictions in summer, our dry season.  The city relies on tourism as its main industry, and is keen not to let this manifestation of  climate change affect visits to our city.  Please see the official message from the city…  

Our understanding  from the media is that City's plan is not to cut off the water in the Central Business District, where the Convention Centre is.  Furthermore, the conference is being held in the winter which is our rainy season, so that the dams will (we trust) increase their rather low levels come May and June.  Us ordinary residents might face tough times in April, but the water should be flowing in residential taps (not just the hotels) by June.
