Project Coordinator in Lesotho
The Government of Lesotho is implementing a five year (2015-2020) project “Reducing Vulnerability from Climate Change in Foothills, Lower Lowlands and Senqu River Basin” through the UNDP Country Office with funding from the Global Environment Facility (GEF). The premise of the project is that communities and ecosystems are increasingly becoming exposed to damaging impacts of climate change, which is affecting ecosystem services that support most people in Lesotho, their livelihoods and also a range of global benefits to the region. In order to alleviate this challenge, this project is addressing the problems of land degradation, poverty and vulnerability of the Basotho to climate change in the Foothills, Lowlands and the Lower Senqu River Basin.
