Our team undertook a mission in Lesotho in March 2018 to prepare the start of Phase 1 of the project LoCAL (Local Climate Adaptive Living Facility).
The project, conducted by UNCDF and financed by the European Union's Global Climate Change Alliance (EU's GCCA), SIDA (Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency) and Government of Liechtenstein, is aimed at improving the climate change resilience of local communities and economies, in order to reverse the effects of climate change in the country in the long run.
During our mission, community councils have approved the design and agreed to work on adaptation to climate change. This positive outcome suggests a successful continuation for this project which might represent a milestone in the country’s fight against climate change.
