Lesotho Compact II

Lesotho has been selected to develop a second compact with funding from MCC. The objective of the compact is to unlock equitable and sustainable economic growth in partnership with the private sector by loosening key constraints. Initial analyses identified four areas of potential investment: health, job skills, land, and the regulatory environment. 

Intensifying these constraints to growth is the government's inability to efficiently use its resources to coordinate and deliver high-quality services and results that align with national strategic goals.
