Lesotho - Lesotho Highlands Water Project - Phase 1B (Inglês)

The main objectives of the Lesotho Highland Waters Project - Phase 1B are (a) to put in place the physical and managerial capacity for Lesotho to transform its principal natural resources of abundance - water - into export revenues that can be applied to poverty reduction and economic stability while (i) protecting the environment and mitigating any adverse social and environmental impacts and (ii) maximizing the local development spin-offs of the project in Lesotho; and (b) assisting South Africa in developing its lowest cost alternatives for supply of water to the Guateng Region. The components include: (a) main project works including the construction of a concrete face rockfill dam at Mohale, a concrete line tunnel from Mohale to Katse, concrete weir at Matsoku and associated infrastructure; (b) engineering supervision; (c) implementation of a full environmental action plan including resettlement of effected communities, compensation for project related losses, income restoration and rural development, natural environment and heritage, a public health program and program monitoring and (d) administration and capacity building.
