Water Stock Accounts: South Africa  

Water accounts were initially compiled by the Natural Resource Accounting in Southern Africa (NRASA) project in 2000, including physical and monetary accounts for 1991–92 through 1998–99. These first accounts were for physical stocks as well as physical flows. Water accounts are now institutionalised in water management in South Africa. As of 2003, all 19 WMAs in the country had updated water accounts for the year 2000, according to the UN SEEA. Water accounts are created for each individual WMA and then aggregated to the national level.
