Start your water stewardship journey


Explore the stories of farmers on their journeys towards being good water stewards.

Water is a shared resource, one which is scarce in South Africa. Water stewardship is a long-term journey towards improving your water use and reducing your water impacts - in your business, across your supply chain and in the catchment area you depend on for water. Good water stewardship means playing an active and attentive role around water - where your water comes from, how you use it and where it goes to.

This Water Stewardship Guide is based on a tested set of criteria, from the internationally recognised Alliance for Water Stewardship (AWS) standard. It has been made relevant to a South African agricultural and small business context, with pragmatic actions and tips to assist your journey.
