Selected Projects

70 MW Ha-Ramarothole Solar Power Project: Environmental and Social Impact Assessment

The environmental and social impact assessment was conducted in line with Lesotho EIA Act 10 of 2008 and international standards. Most impacts are expected during the construction phase and are considered to be temporary

Water Supply Infrastructure Project: Environmental and Social Impact Assessment

The project involved the preparation of environmental and social impact assessment (ESIA) for Oacha’sNek Water Supply in accordance with the Lesotho EIA Act 10 of 2008 and the National Environmental Guidelines of 2009. The ESIA identified possible environmental impacts of the construction (pipeline networks, water treatment storage and reticulation) and operations phase of the project. The environmental management plan developed for the project outlines the mitigation, monitoring and institutional measures to be employed to minimize the risk to the environment resulting from these interventions and to improve water quality and quantity. The EIA report also includes development of Specialist Reports on Aquatic Ecology, Terrestrial Ecology (flora and fauna), Cultural Heritage Assessment, Wetland Assessment, Public Consultation Strategy.

Water Supply Infrastructure Project: Environmental and Social Management Plan for Construction

The Terms of Reference for the project was developed in consultation with the Department of Environment (DoE). The ESMP for the four town (Butha Buthe, Mohale’sHoek, Hlotse and Mafeteng) was prepared by contextualizing the EIAs prepared under the Lesotho Lowland Bulk Water Supply Scheme (LLBWSS). The EMP translates recommended mitigation and monitoring measures into specific actions that will be carried out by the project proponent. It included written procedures and controls that provided direction towards construction and operations activities. It identified the roles and responsibilities of the environmental management team as well as the monitoring and reporting requirements.
