Challenges Improving operating efficiencies: Clear policy and strategy for meter calibration and replacement developed and being implemented; UfW reduced to an average of 27% overall by March 2012; and Energy consumption reduced by 20% from M9.3m/annum in 2008/09 to M7.44m/annum in the 2011/12 financial year.
SBS PROGRAMME IMPLEMENTATION: Teams: agencies LESOTHO GOVERNMENT: delegated (decentralized) authority by EU to GoL : 1.MoFDP: sign financing agreement, donor coordination; GoL procurement procedures (assessment done by Pot for PFM); thresholds of contracts for: works, supplies, services, grant contracts, etc., 2.MNR: implementation: water sector agencies, reporting (M&E) (supervision and execution, etc.), Cooperation with donor community: 1.EU: procurement ?, ensures agreement is signed, 2.IRELAND, 3.EIB, 4.WORLD BANK and financiers, 5.ETC.,Other stakeholders: NGOs, etc.

The 3-Towns Project: Maputsoe, TY, and Roma, Urban and Peri-urban Project: rehabilitation of: 1.Mafeteng Scootvlei WTP (to 500m3/day); 2.Mafeteng WTP (to 2,000m3/day); 3.Botha-Bothe boreholes (to 2,600m3/day); and 4.Quthing WTP (to 1,500m3/day. Tikoe-Thetsane: intake structure at Caledon River, 20ML WTP, transmission main, gravity main. Total production capacity increased by 29.52ML/day by March 2012.
Expand sewerage network, and this will be achieved through: Focusing on the ongoing Maseru Wastewater Project, which includes: Refurbishment and upgrading of the Ratjomose WWTP; Construction of new WWTP at Agric College; Rehabilitation, infilling and extension of sewerage systems in the Ratjomose catchment area; Construction of new sewerage systems in the Agric College catchment area; Challenges urban sanitation services
Challenges for Urban Sanitation Expand sewerage network, and this will be achieved through: Focusing on the ongoing Maseru Wastewater Project, which includes: Construction of on-site disposal systems (VIPs) and conversion of existing VIP latrines into water borne systems. Rehabilitation and expansion of sewerage networks and treatment plants in Maputsoe, TY and Roma (3-Towns Project).
