Public Private Partnerships of Lesotho
Lesotho has embraced the idea of PPPs over the last decade as a means of improving public services. Maseru City Council has led the way, working with the UN Development Programme to identify projects that would benefit from private sector involvement. PPP arrangements have been put in place in the capital for waste facilities management, outdoor advertising and road maintenance.
The Maseru City Council has established a PPP Management Unit and has been working with the national government to look for nationwide opportunities for PPP projects – particularly waste facilities management – with ongoing support from the UN Development Programme and UN-HABITAT.
