Blue Deal South Africa – Crocodile River project

Organization: Blue Deal Crocodile River Partnership

Enter the Crocodile River Partnership, a collaborative endeavor that unites a diverse coalition of organizations. The Dutch Water Authorities, the Inkomati-Usuthu Catchment Management Agency (IUCMA), the Department of Water and Sanitation (DWS), the Department of Cooperative Governance and Traditional Affairs (COGTA), the Municipal Infrastructure Support Agent (MISA), and three local municipalities - the City of Mbombela Local Municipality, Nkomazi Local Municipality, and Emakhazeni Local Municipality.

Collective mission

Our collective mission is to enhance the operation of six wastewater treatment facilities, improving the water quality of the Crocodile River. The Crocodile River serves as a source of drinking water, supports agriculture, holds significance as a sacred space for religious rituals, and, not to be overlooked, plays a vital role in the aquatic ecosystem.

The strength of unity and collaboration

The Crocodile River Partnership is more than just a project; it serves as a testament to the strength of unity and collaboration. All the remarkable individuals involved in this project work together to ensure that the Crocodile River thrives, providing clean water for all and preserving the vitality of this natural treasure.
