Abstract:This work discusses the sector wide approach (SWAP) for aid and development effectiveness and examines and analyzes the experience of Swaziland in its attempt to implement the SWAP based on an assessment of the four priority sectors (agriculture, education, health, and water and sanitation) in which they were launched. The methodology included interviews with key stakeholders in the four sectors. The work finds that, with the exception of the health SWAP, there has been very little progress in the SWAP implementation and no SWAP-related results have been delivered in support of the country's National Development Strategy and its Poverty Reduction Strategy and Action Plan. The factors contributing to that state of affairs are also discussed and recommendations are offered on the way forward.
