Inequality in Southern Africa : An Assessment of the Southern African Customs Union - Country Brief : Eswatini (English)

Eswatini has made the slowest progress in reducing inequality among the Southern African Customs Union (SACU) countries and remains among the top 15 percent of unequal countries. A critical source of inequality is differences in productivity-related characteristics (the primary income distribution), particularly in tertiary or post-secondary educational attainment and skills, which are key to accessing decent jobs. Another important driver of inequality is a widening welfare gap between households with younger and economically active members and those without that demographic dividend. Enhancing the quality of education, promoting skills development, and creating jobs especially for poor and young people are, therefore, key to accelerating the reduction in inequality.
