Lesotho Highlands Water Project

CREDIT AMOUNT: IDA-US$45 million equivalent
PROJECT DESCRIPTION: This project will produce the necessary physical and managerial capacity for Lesotho to transform its principal natural resource-water-into export revenues which can be applied to poverty reduction and economic stability. The project will also assist South Africa in developing its lowest cost alternative for water supply to the Gauteng Region. These accomplishments will be met while protecting the environment and mitigating any adverse social and environmental impacts, as well as maximizing local development spin-offs of the project in Lesotho.
