[LISTEN] The Science Inside: The drought episode

This week The Science Inside radio show looks at the drought and water crisis hitting South Africa. Find out exactly where your water comes from with Dean Muruven from WWF SA’s #JourneyOfWater and take a look at how Cirrus Water Management is using atmospheric water generation to make water out of thin air.

With the help of the Water Research Commission’s Jay Bhagwan, find out how more than 30% of drinkable water gets flushed down the toilet, and take a look at one alternative, the Enviro-Loo.

Prof Mary Scholes sheds light on why the drought is happening and what impact it could have on food security.

The Science Inside is an initiative of the Wits Radio Academy.

SciBraai, a proudly South African NPO dedicated to science journalism, communication and outreach. SciBraai began on Heritage Day 2013 - Anina Mumm and Engela Duvenage in 2013 launched the website, scibraai.co.za, to feature stories about South African research, technology and innovation, and the people behind the discoveries. This blog welcomes all South Africans to go behind the scenes of local science and exploration endeavors. It’s a place to share stories about the scientists themselves and the interesting, little-known activities that are often left out of research journals. A place to learn more about the stuff that makes South African science and its people tick. A place to feel inspired about what South Africans are discovering on home soil and abroad. Because local is lekker, no matter what language you use. SciBraai's following has grown in the past years, and we are now on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. We've also begun organising real-life braai's where we share round-the-fire stories about South African science and scientists.
