Renforcement de la résilience climatique grâce aux systèmes d’alerte précoce au Lesotho

In 2011, the Government of Lesotho secured funding from the Global Environment Facility’s Least Developed Country Fund to reduce the negative impacts of climate change on vulnerable communities. A central approach of the project was to build the resilience of vulnerable communities by strengthening Lesotho’s climate information and forecasting systems, which contribute to communities’ adaptive capacity regarding preparation for extreme weather events. An analysis of project components produced key lessons regarding best practices for community engagement, monitoring and evaluation, policy mainstreaming, and much more. These lessons are now informing Phase II of the project.
