Energy and water have always been closely linked, but shale gas exploration and water have a particularly intimate connection. In light of the South African government’s decision to move forward with exploration in the Karoo basin, a recognised water-scarce region, should the public be concerned at the potential threat to freshwater availability and quality?How will these risks be mitigated?Should we frack at all?

Oftentimes the solution to deeply contentious issues lies simply in ‘reframing’ the conversation. This is exactly what WWF and SAfm’s DecisiveDebates series will do – provide an opportunity for the public to directly engage with dynamic, outspoken experts as they tackle a range of hot topics
