Climate change is already impacting on Lesotho, and robust integrated policies, strategies and action plans are required to prepare the “Mountain Kingdom” for continuing changes in the future. This study forms part of a larger Programme aimed at strengthening technical and institutional capacity for climate change adaptation in the agricultural sector, thus reducing vulnerability of farming and rural communities to climate-related risks.

This Report forms part of a larger Technical Cooperation Programme (TCP) which “promotes an integrated and community-based approach in addressing climate change risks through strengthening of technical and institutional capacity of key stakeholders at national and local levels and evaluating and prioritizing best practices focusing on selected areas of crops, livestock, forest-based livelihood system to reduce the vulnerability of farming and rural communities to climate change-related risks” (TCP Lesotho Tender Information document, 2009).
