"Lesotho is heavily influenced by a variety of competing weather systems because of its high elevation that range from 1,388 to 3,482m above sea level.These climatic conditions make Lesotho to be highly vulnerable to climate change impacts. The country is already experiencing some impacts of global warming as seen by the increasing frequency of natural disasters, droughts and emerging signs of desertification, fragile characteristics of its soil and terrain, and erratic climatic conditions such as changing patterns in rainfall periods and the risk of shorter growing seasons.The observed and anticipated impacts of climate change are likely to affect agricultural production and livelihoods as more than 80% of the population in Lesotho are farmers that depend on subsistence agriculture for their livelihood. However, the lack of access to modern technologies and farming methods including High Value Crops (HVCs) and inorganic fertilizers continue to hamper the realisation of food security."
