Toelichting This case study provides a description of a cooperative partnership between Swaziland and the Dutch Water Authorities aimed at the further development of the river basin institutions in Swaziland. Swaziland is a sovereign state in Southern Africa. It is neighbored by Mozambique to its east and by South Africa to its north, west and south. At no more than 200 kilometres north to south and 130 kilometres east to west, Swaziland is one of the smallest countries in Africa. Despite its size, Swaziland holds a significant position as far as water management in the southern part of Africa is concerned. This position is due to the fact that two major rivers, the Incomati river and the Usuthu (Maputo) river, originate in South Africa and flow through Swaziland to Mozambique. The Incomati river in fact first flows in South Africa, then into Swaziland and again through South Africa, before it enters Mozambique.
