The Government of Lesotho, with support of international partners, has embarked on an ambitious national programme for Integrated Catchment Management (ICM) under the brand name ReNoka – We are a river. The European Union and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development has commissioned GIZ to support the Government of Lesotho in the implementation of integrated catchment management. The support project aims to implement ICM in line with climate change adaptation principles that will rehabilitate degraded watersheds across the country and to put in place prevention measures that will halt the further degradation of Lesotho’s catchment areas. The sustainable management of Lesotho’s catchments are of critical importance for water, energy and food security not only in Lesotho itself but in the entire Orange-Senqu Basin and Gauteng Province, Southern Africa’s economic centre.  Target areas of implementation include policy harmonization; institutional development; building human capacities, skills and knowledge, implementation of watershed rehabilitation measures; and support for data and monitoring.   

Implementation of the Integrated Catchment Management programme has begun, despite limitations of on the ground work due to Covid-19. Whilst work is limited to virtual interaction, the programme continues to engage with partners in the development of communication and knowledge products that will serve to increase visibility of ICM as a project and to communicate to stakeholders nationally, regionally and internationally. ReNoka is therefore seeking to appoint an expert to translate all communication materials published by the programme. The service contract will support the programme in translation – English to Sesotho or Sesotho to English of communication material developed. 

The overall objective of this service contract is to translate all publication (e.g. reports, factsheets, brochures etc) generated by the Support to Integrated Catchment Management project in Sesotho to English and English to Sesotho where need arises.
