The Phase 3 of the Lesotho Lowlands Water Development and Sanitation Project is designed to increase the quality, access, and sustainable operations of improved water supply and sanitation services in Butha Buthe district and its resilience to climate change impacts. The LLWDSP III is designed to cover critical, urgent water supply infrastructure development and sanitation interventions in Butha Buthe district and 12 surrounding settlements. The Bank’s intervention is justified by the fact that WSS provision is one of the priority areas of the Country’s NSDP II. The project aims to satisfy the domestic, commercial, and industrial water demand in Butha Buthe district, surrounding settlements and villages which are currently experiencing poor service delivery compounded by aged and dilapidated infrastructure. The NSDP II identifies rehabilitation and development of WSS infrastructure as a priority area for promoting economic growth and reducing poverty. The project will comprise the following three main components: (i) Climate Resilient and Low Carbon Emission Water Supply Infrastructure Development, (ii) Sanitation Services Improvement; (iii) Institutional Strengthening, Capacity Building and Program Management.
The overall development objective is to increase the quality, access, and sustainable operations of improved water supply and sanitation services in Butha Buthe district and its resilience to climate change impacts. The specific project objective is to develop climate resilient water and sanitation infrastructure to improve access for 126,3807 persons to WASH services and enhance performance of sector agencies to improve service delivery in Butha Buthe district and surrounding settlements.
The project will be implemented in Butha Buthe region and directly benefiting 126,3809 people (52% women). The additional population to be considered includes the currently underserved and unserved population to meet the national sector service coverage targets.
