restoration and conservation activity helps Lesotho address
widespread overgrazing and degradation of alpine wetlands.
These are prevalent throughout the highlands of Lesotho and
are an important ecological and economic resource that
naturally regulates flow in the Senqu/Orange River Basin and
provides livestock pasture, medicinal plants, thatch, and
other rural livelihood benefits. Using MCC Funding, a
pilot-scale project will be implemented to design and apply
restoration measures and examine alternative land management
prescriptions at three target study areas, including
wetlands at Khalong-la-Lithunya (Oxbow area), Kotisephola (Sani
Pass area), and Letšeng-la-Letsie (an internationally
protected Ramsar site in Quthing).
