This is done to find out which actors were involved, or left out of the process of river basin planning, and how different actors were involved. Planning as done by the catchment council is compared to planning as done by water users at the local level. Experiences of the Inkomati Catchment, South Africa, will be used to compare planning processes between South Africa and Zimbabwe. The chapter argues that river basin planning on paper offers an opportunity to bring different actors to the water table.

The Zimbabwean crisis was characterised by a serious economic decline and social and political turmoil. A characteristic of the period soon after Independence in 1980 was positive economic growth (Richardson, 2005). Exceptional years were 1984 and 1992 during which economic growth was affected by serious droughts (Makochekanwa and Kwaramba, 2009). However, in the 2000s the country’s economy was characterised by negative economic growth with inflation being a major problem. By January 2009, for example, annual inflation was estimated to be about 5 billion per cent, while month on month inflation was about 230 million per cent (ibid) 2.

Sanctions were imposed against the country which affected the flow of aid and Direct Foreign Investment (DFI). 3 There is no consensus as to what caused the Zimbabwean crisis. The government blamed the crisis on ‘illegal’ sanctions imposed on the country and a series of droughts which allegedly affected agricultural productivity. However, one of the most popular theories is that the Fast Track Land Redistribution Programme which the government embarked on in 2000 (Zikhali, 2010) started the chain of events which culminated in the crisis.
