|Overview : |
In contribution to national efforts towards the post-COVID-19 economic recovery, UNDP and local partners will implement a project on Promoting Green Economy through value chains. UNDP has also partnered with Standard Lesotho Bank and the Lesotho National Development Corporation (LNDC) to implement a supplier development programme aimed building local supplier capacities for development of effective value chains and productive capacities. The programme model is to build a localized loop for capacity building, procurement, finance and networking, and policy support allowing local SMMEs to take advantage of existing local opportunities for growth and development thereby increasing potential local productivity.
To help shape the programme, UNDP is looking to engage a consultancy firm with expertise in private sector and value chains development to help refine the implementing methodology for the project and define a capacity building programme for the recruited project beneficiaries.
