Assessment of the challenges and future prospects of the Vaal River: benefits to the public

The project seeks to identify the challenges that the Vaal River in South Africa is facing and its future prospects. Different activities occurring at the river will be assessed towards the benefits to the people to understand the overall benefits of the river to the public.  When the challenges and prospects of the Vaal River have been investigated and interrogated, the results will be used to enhance interdisciplinary approaches for potentially improved and better future prospects.
