The UK Government provided support to the Lesotho Highlands Water programme in 1987 and to the Highland Water scheme (Phase I and II) and the Lesotho Delegation of the Highlands Water Commission from 1999 to January 2005. Funding was mainly in the form of engineering technical assistance.

There have been no other interventions by the UK, nor have we received any representations since then.
