Abstract: YSF is a WRC-funded initiative that strives to raise awareness about, and build capacity in, transdisciplinarity in the SADC water sector. This forum is an issue-driven, collaborative exchange for young water professionals and students, and one which encourages the recognition and mutual respect of multiple perspectives. YSF hosts a variety of workshops and events which aim to facilitate transdisciplinary, collaborative work for students and young water professionals to grow their competence in dealing with complex water-related problems. This forum also specifically commits to incentivising the Social Sciences in the water sector both by creating awareness of the need for social science skills in the sector; and to make social scientists aware that there are fruitful career opportunities in the water sector.
