About this guide

This guide directs you to many government sources on water resources from international to local level. It contains links to useful websites and documents and records of print publications in this section of UCT Libraries. Please note that we lost most of our books in the April 2021 Jagger Library fire. 

Please also consult the Library's Primo  Catalogue for print publications and our resource lists for on-line information: Government by Subject: International and Foreign Countries and SA Government by Subject.

There may be broken links for South Africa because of the change of the name - and URL - of the Department of Water and Sanitation from Water Affairs. Please contact Laureen Rushby for further assistance. Tel. 021 650 4686.
