Our theme for 2015 is “Changing the face of the Municipal Engineer

With all the challenges facing our industry today, whether these are economical, social, environmental or political, we need to adapt and be innovative. This starts with the local authorities, where most of us perform some function to serve our communities. But it goes beyond the government corridors – it stretches into the ideas and solutions created by each engineer in South Africa.

With this in mind we will focus on the following sub-themes:

• Political and Legislative Perspectives • Ecological and Environmental Impacts • Financial Considerations • Transport and Traffic • Water and Sanitation • Roads and Storm Water

About Cape Town

Also known as the Mother City, Cape Town is located on the shore of Table Bay and was first developed by the Dutch East India Company as a supply station for Dutch ships sailing to East Africa, India, and the Far East. Jan van Riebeeck’s arrival on 6 April 1652 established the first permanent European settlement in South Africa. Cape Town quickly outgrew its original purpose as the first European outpost at the Castle of Good Hope, becoming the economic and cultural hub of the Cape Colony. Until the Gold Rush and the development of Johannesburg, Cape Town was the largest city in South Africa. As the seat of the National Parliament, it is also the legislative capital of the country. The city is famous for its harbour, for its natural setting in the Cape Floristic Region, as well as for such well-known landmarks as Table Mountain and Cape Point.
