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 SDGs. 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 UNDP Country Office and the Government of Lesotho will, for the next five years (2016 –2021) implement a UNDP/GEF-financed project “Development of Cornerstone Public Policies and Institutional Capacities to accelerate Sustainable Energy for All (SE4All) Progress”. With the total budget of $3,900,000, the project is implemented by the Department of Energy (DOE) of the Ministry Energy and Meteorology (MEM) while UNDP works closely with the Ministry to identify specialist support needs and contract the relevant experts. The objective of the project is to catalyse investments in renewable energy-based mini-grids and Energy Centres to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and contribute to the achievement of Lesotho’s Vision 2020 and SE4All goals. The project is expected to implement 10 mini-grids and 10 Energy Centres providing modern energy services to 1,000 rural households in the 5 districts of Mohale’s Hoek, Mokhotlong, Thaba-Tseka, Qacha’s Nek and Quthing.

The SE4All Project requires the services of a National Consulting Firm to undertake pre-feasibility studies for mini-grids in 20 village communities spanning 5 of Lesotho’s 10 districts.
