The issue of water supply is high on the agenda of the South African government. The need for improvements in water supply and quality was referred to by President Jacob Zuma on 7 April 2012 in his state of the nation address – and with good reason. According to information from the Department of Water Affairs in South Africa, the country needs more than 8,000 qualified workers to make up for shortcomings in the operation and maintenance of South African water supply and wastewater disposal plants. The challenge is to achieve efficient operation and sustainable maintenance of these plants. To meet this challenge, Festo Didactic has developed specially adapted EduKit PA learning systems for South Africa in cooperation with the German Agency for International Cooperation (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, GIZ). The project is supported by the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development.
