Enhancing dam catchment management; the integration of grey and ecological infrastructure for water security

The main goal of this project is to highlight the importance of the connection between water-related Ecological Infrastructure and Grey Infrastructure in ensuring long-term water security in South Africa. The project involves reviewing previous research from the Water Research Commission (WRC) and other relevant research outputs on siltation in relation to ecological infrastructure maintenance to identify gaps in the research and map a way forward for future research. Additionally, the project aims to develop a Digital Siltation Dashboard for major dams in South Africa and proposing appropriate living lab locations for implementation and monitoring of Ecological Infrastructure interventions to improve siltation management
