Strengthening capacity in strategic financial planning for the water supply and sanitation sector in Lesotho : final report

The Ministry of Natural Resources and its office of the Commissioner for Water in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning and other stakeholders have launched an initiative to strengthen the strategic financial planning in the water sector. This initiative is supported by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and European Union Water Initiative/ Finance Working Group. At the same time these efforts will contribute to global efforts to develop generic tools for strategic financial planning by testing tools such as FEASIBLE and will also test paradigms for country specific tools. The existing facilities and the targets combined with overall macro-economic forecast leads to an expenditure forecast. The sources of potential finance and the rules governing public transfers and user charges and the overall macro-economic context/forecast lead to a projection of available finance. The difference between the expenditure forecast and the available finance results in a financing gap (or surplus) which can be managed by changing the “variables” within the demand side and  supply side. This iterative process will allow different scenarios to be developed and provide an evidence based policy decision support. [authors abstract]

Abstract

The Ministry of Natural Resources and its office of the Commissioner for Water in partnership with the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning and other stakeholders have launched an initiative to strengthen the strategic financial planning in the water sector. This initiative is supported by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and European Union Water Initiative/ Finance Working Group. At the same time these efforts will contribute to global efforts to develop generic tools for strategic financial planning by testing tools such as FEASIBLE and will also test paradigms for country specific tools. The existing facilities and the targets combined with overall macro-economic forecast leads to an expenditure forecast. The sources of potential finance and the rules governing public transfers and user charges and the overall macro-economic context/forecast lead to a projection of available finance. The difference between the expenditure forecast and the available finance results in a financing gap (or surplus) which can be managed by changing the “variables” within the demand side and  supply side. This iterative process will allow different scenarios to be developed and provide an evidence based policy decision support. [authors abstract]
