The groundwork is being laid for a new, Cowater-implemented initiative in Lesotho’s water sector, where the Canadian management consulting firm will provide project management, construction supervision, and environmental management of rural water supply and sanitation projects over the next four years. Funded by Government of the United States through the Millennium Challenge Corporation and managed by the Millennium Challenge Account in Lesotho, Cowater personnel will assist staff of the Department of Rural Water Services of the Kingdom of Lesotho in the implementation of 250 water supply systems and approximately 30,000 VIP latrines. This is the second recent MCA contract for Cowater in Southern Africa.
