Lesotho-Botswana Water Transfer Project


Lesotho – Botswana Water Transfer Project aims to implement a water conveyance system in Lesotho through South Africa to Botswana.
The project also includes the construction of a multi-purpose dam in Lesotho with a hydropower plant.
The project objectives are to:
• Water supply to Botswana, as well as Lesotho and South African municipalities along the route; beneficial to continued economic growth and implying commensurate socio-economic benefits
• Hydropower generation in Lesotho, in order to improve population access to electricity and to reduce dependency on imported energy supply
• Climate resilience enhancement from water shortages and droughts for communities in Botswana, Lesotho, and South Africa, which have negatively impacted agriculture sector outputs, factor remuneration, and general households’ welfare
• Creation of long term employment opportunities
