The Economic and Social Value of Water in Lesotho and South Africa: A Macroeconomic Baseline Analysis
Lesotho is the mountain kingdom. It is also one of the most important rainfall catchments in Southern Africa. This blesses Lesotho with abundant water and there is rarely, if ever, a shortage of natural water. Lesotho also capitalizes on this water bounty by transferring some of these resources to South Africa.

Any restraint on these water transfers will, arguably, have a significant and negative impact on the South African economy.
