Lesotho - Implementation of economic and financial regulatory models for LEA and future LEWA : inception report (English)

Economic consulting associates (ECA) has been engaged by the World Bank, with funding from public-private infrastructure advisory facility (PPIAF), to carry out a project for the implementation of economic and financial regulatory models for Lesotho. The objective of the first phase project was to develop economic and financial regulatory models for the water and electricity sectors in Lesotho that will be used for tariff setting and sector and investment planning. With this tool Lesotho electricity authority (LEA) which is to be re-named the Lesotho electricity and water authority (LEWA), will be able to prepare various scenarios taking into account the constraints of the licensees (costs of operation, maintenance, and investments) as well as the government’s (parameters of expansion targets and social policies). Its goal was to provide the framework for a consistent and quantitative regulation and increase accountability and transparency of regulatory decisions and processes. This inception report is the first deliverable under the project and follows the kick-off visit to Lesotho. The report is laid out as follows: a brief summary of the kick-off visit and key findings that impact on the scope of work; a restatement of the tasks and outputs; the approach and methodology from the technical proposal; and notes of any updates or changes arising from the inception visit to the approach and methodology.
