In South Africa, the water sector is currently being revised, whereby the water regulating role is being decentralised to newly to be established organizations called Catchment Management Agencies (CMAs). The Kingfisher II Programme 2017-2018, as a follow up to Kingfisher I (2012- 2016) aims to support nine Catchment Management Agencies in their water regulating role to improve water governance at local level and thereby create a platform for innovative solutions. This would in turn enhance economic development in a sustainable manner. <br />
