    The purpose of this policy note is to
    contribute to an understanding of the factors that combine
    to constrain the development of smallholder agriculture in
    Swaziland. It seeks to shed light on why, despite being
    well-endowed in land and water resources, and despite having
    a climate that is generally favorable for the production of
    crops and livestock, Swaziland is obliged to import
    substantial amounts of food to feed the population. Also,

    The specific objective of this policy
    note is to derive insights that can contribute to rapid and
    sustainable integration of small-scale farmers into the
    livestock and horticulture value chains in Swaziland. It
    seeks to do this by identifying constraints that may be
    contributing to poor performance in the two value chains,
    evaluating technological options that could improve
    productivity, and identifying priority areas for future

    This history illustrates a number of
    themes encountered in Swaziland that faces developing
    countries and their external partners in Africa and beyond.
    Firstly, the history relates the experience of a small and
    comparatively insular country in addressing complex
    challenges deriving from rapid urbanization and, as a
    result, the growing need to adapt governance systems and
    structures. A second key issue is the challenge that small

    Unplanned and unregulated urban
    development is not unique to Swaziland, but addressing the
    issue through direct consultations with beneficiaries is an
    important improvement toward resolving this persistent
    problem. The Swaziland Urban Development Project includes
    standard infrastructure work, such as increasing urban
    roads, rehabilitating and expanding water and sewage
    services, and developing a solid waste facility However, in

    The people of Swaziland are its greatest
    resource. Yet, social and economic indicators of household
    welfare converge to confirm fundamental inequalities in
    access to incomes and assets, and the existence of
    significant poverty and deprivation. Furthermore, as the
    regional economic and social climate is transformed, the
    fragile gains of the past are being fast eroded. At this
    historic juncture, the Swazi poor need to come to the fore

    The Incomati basin encompasses parts of South Africa, Swaziland and Mozambique, and is a water stressed basin. Equitable allocation of water is crucial to sustain livelihoods and agro-ecosystems, and to sustain international agreements. As compliance monitoring of water distribution by flow meters is laborious, expensive and only partially feasible, a novel approach has been developed to estimate water withdrawals using satellite measurements. Direct withdrawals include pumping from rivers, impoundments and groundwater, for irrigation and other human uses.
