invites you to warm and friendly KwaZulu-Natal for the IMESA 2014 Conference, co-hosted by Ethekwini Municipality in Durban 28 – 31 October 2014.


Our theme for 2014 is “Balancing Service Delivery

We selected this theme because proposed new legislation around infrastructure development is putting more pressure on the efficient delivery of services across the “Built” environment. Efficient planning is now paramount to balance human, material and financial resources to achieve Government’s objectives to meet its service delivery targets.

The whole process will become a balancing act from initial planning and design, followed by procurement and implementation in the shortest possible time without compromising quality. We will focus on the following sub themes in the 2014 Conference;

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