The theme for World Water Day, 22 March 2018, is "Nature for Water." This theme "explores nature-based solutions (NBS) to the water challenges we face in the 21st century. The campaign is called ‘The answer is in nature’ and raises awareness of NBS. The central message is that NBS, such as planting trees to replenish forests, reconnecting rivers to floodplains, and restoring wetlands, is a sustainable and cost-effective way to help rebalance the water cycle, mitigate the effects of climate change and improve human health and livelihoods."
"Human Rights Day is a national day that is commemorated annually on 21 March to remind South Africans about the sacrifices that accompanied the struggle for the attainment of democracy in South Africa.
The commemoration provides the country with an opportunity to reflect on progress made in the promotion and protection of human rights."
The Draft roads policy for South Africa "sets out the strategic position of National Government on all matters relating to road regulation, roads infrastructure, road safety road funding and Non-motorised Transport (NMT). It does not attempt to address operational matters, except for road safety (which requires a systems approach and thus operational matters are also considered)."
