Mr. Salvator narrated the genesis and developmental stages of the project starting with the pledge by Lesotho political parties to prioritize reforms after the June 3, 2017 poll, to key UN’s responses that included the deployment of team of experts who consulted stakeholders and supported the Government to develop a Reforms Framework and Roadmap titled, “The Lesotho We Want: Dialogue and Reforms for National Transformation - Vision, Overview and Roadmap.”
Firstly, Mr. Annan worked tirelessly for global peace, security and cooperation. Secondly, as UN Secretary General, Mr. Annan placed a high premium on the promotion of Human Rights.
The UN has been a partner in Lesotho’s development since independence, supporting the government of the day and the people to pursue national aspirations. Within this partnership, the UN has supported the quest for the reforms since 2015 when the previous government sought and received technical support on constitutional review options. Support to the reforms continued after last year’s election when the current government approached the UN for support.
Eventually, through the determination and drive of eleven founding members, their dream came true.
Effectively support creation of environmental benefits and safeguarding of the global environment through community and local solutions that complement and add value to national and global level action.
