The WRC was established in terms of the Water Research Act (Act No 34 of 1971), following a period of serious water shortage. It was deemed to be of national importance to generate new knowledge and to promote the country’s water research purposefully, owing to the view held that water would be one of South Africa’s most limiting factors in the 21st century
The strategic direction of the WRC is focused on:
- An integrated approach to meeting South Africa's societal and water-sector R&D needs
- Provision of integrated solutions to invariably complex, inter-disciplinary problems
- Ongoing strategic identification of needs (short, medium and long-term needs, both explicit and implicit)
- Investment in knowledge creation, transfer and dissemination in a set of 5 Key Strategic Areas (KSAs).

Wherever the Need is a UK charity offering a new look at giving and supporting. Our aim is a holistic approach to the provision and use of eco-sanitation toilets and clean water, which we believe to be vital to the good health of both people and the planet. Once these fundamentals are in place, our focus is the development of sustainable livelihoods.
It is our priority to implement projects that will directly benefit individuals over the long-term in the most efficient way possible (‘direct action’). This enables sponsors of the charity to respond specifically to the needs of local people (rather than indirectly through Governmental or large Non-Governmental Organisations) thus enabling, where wished, a connection to be established between those making the donation and those benefiting from it.
In tandem with the provision of sanitation, water and livelihoods, WTN has responded to the building of houses and community centres in areas stricken by disaster. All projects are approached in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible to further the Trustee’s aim to safeguard the planet.
