Lesotho is considered the water tower of Southern Africa. It feeds the Orange-Senqu river, which is of vital importance for regional livelihoods, economy and environment. Today, Lesotho’s catchments are threatened by severe ecosystem degradation. To protect this vital resource, Lesotho embarked on a national programme for Integrated Catchment Management known as ReNOKA (‘we are a river’). It aims to improve livelihoods and economic development for today’s and future generations through the conservation of biodiversity, land, and water resources in the catchment areas of the rivers in Lesotho.
