Water Use, Lesotho, 2016

Water withdrawals for the agriculture sector as a proportion of total withdrawals is only 8.68 per cent. This could be attributed to the small size of irrigation development in the country. Some of the reasons for this include high installation and maintenance costs, inappropriate irrigation design schemes and a lack of farmer commitment. This has resulted in farmers abandoning some irrigation schemes and returning to dryland agriculture (FAO 2005).
