    Thinking about rural development has evolved over the years, in a symbiotic relationship with thinking about rural development more generally: from community development, through the Green Revolution, to integrated rural development, and from the mids onwards, increasing attention to sustainable livelihoods as a route to poverty reduction. The United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) reaf-firmed commitment to sustainable development and adopted a framework for action and comprehensive follow-up. The World Economic and Social Survey serves as a valuable resource as we look towards translating the outcome of Rio+20 into concrete actions.

Frequent droughts, irregular rainfall, occasional flooding and the severe climate conditions significantly influence the ability to produce sustainable agriculture in Lesotho.
