GHG Emissions Inventory Report
The subject of climate change is of special interest to the Government and people of Lesotho. Our national greeting ìKhotso, Pula, Nalaî which literally translates into ì Peace, Rain, Prosperityî is testimony of the importance of climate, indicated by rainfall in the day to day life of way of every Mosotho. Lesotho possesses a fragile mountainous ecosystem and as a result is vulnerable to drought, desertification and large-scale land degradation. By appending its signature to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) in June 1992 in Rio de Janeiro and its subsequent ratification in March 1995, Lesotho was not only unequivocal in its appreciation of the threat posed by human induced climate change to the well being of the present and future generations but also expressing its full commitment to the terms of the Convention.
