Global Water Partnership Southern Africa and GIZ Transboundary Water Programme
Lesotho is a landlocked country, highly dependent on its river catchments for water supply and thus for economic development. However, with the country experiencing a decrease in dam levels as well as environmental degradation, ReNOKA has been formed, as an active citizenry movement that aims to engage communities within the Orange-Senqu River Basin to act together to protect and restore land and water for the shared prosperity of the catchment and its people. ReNOKA’s goal is to use the tools of Integrated Catchment Management (ICM) to facilitate stronger economic growth and climate resilience for Lesotho.
The revised Terms of Reference for this assignment involves the development of an investment planning toolkit to support ICM mainstreaming in development planning at national and catchment management levels of Lesotho’s governance structures. This has been done through a bottom-up and top-down approach; and testing and validation of the toolkit with the ReNOKA Financing and Investment Technical Reference Group and stakeholders at all levels including sub-catchment level; and a Train the Trainers workshop.
