Overview :

UNDP is the UN"s global development network, advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. It works with individual countries on their own solutions to global and national development challenges. UNDP Lesotho supports Lesotho’s development priorities laid out in the National Strategic Development Plan and through that, the achievement of the MDGs. The focus areas of the UNDP Country Programme are Democratic Governance; Environment and Energy; Poverty Reduction and Economic Growth, with Gender Mainstreaming and HIV/AIDS as crosscutting areas.

The Government of Lesotho through the newly established Ministry of Small Business Development, Cooperatives and Marketing intends to develop a legal and regulatory framework that is consistent to the development of the micro, small and medium enterprises in Lesotho. As a primer, the assignment will consist of an assessment for capabilities of the MSME sector in Lesotho, considering opportunities and gaps for development and growth, and to use the results to determine policy responsiveness and areas that may require regulation. The project is supported under the UNDP Integrated Economic Development Project, which is aimed at supporting efforts to reduce the number of days it takes to register a business in Lesotho and to improve MSME access and use of facilitates for business registration.

UNDP Lesotho therefore invites a qualified consultancy firms or a team of consultants with expertise and experience in policy analysis and development, MSME development, research and legal development to submit applications for the above-mentioned assignment.
