Countries: Lesotho | Operations ID: 200369 | Operations type: Development Operation (DEV)

This operation has been modified as per budget revision 4 (see below)

The Government’s development targets in its Vision 2020 policy are to be realized through the National Strategic Development Plan 2012–2017. There is general optimism, but Lesotho struggles with persistent development challenges such as chronic poverty, widespread food insecurity, high rates of malnutrition and HIV prevalence of 23 percent – the third highest in the world.
