The 2017 Biennial Society of Southern African Geomorphologist’s (SAAG) conference has started and two of our National Committee members, Liezel and Christel, are in attendance. Venue is the University of Swaziland in Manzini (Kwaluseni). The day started off with a welcoming note by the Vice-Chancellor of the university, followed by an address and opening of the conference by the Minister of Tourism and Environmental Affairs of the Kingdom of Swaziland. The next two days will be jam-packed with exciting presentations on everything ranging from erosion research to cold climate studies. A workshop on the use of bio-engineering and Vetiver grass will be held on Friday. For more on the presentations by the attending geomorphologists and professionals, or the ‘landscape detectives‘, have a look at the program here.
