Lesotho: World Bank comes and goes

Idland comments on the World Bank's visit to Lesotho and wonders if it will make any difference to anyone or anything…”I wonder if we aren't barking up the wrong tree. Nobody who is resident here really believes in any of the Growth Strategy papers that get floated around. Only the most optimistic fly-in-fly-out consultants can believe what they write – because they do not stay long enough to understand the fundamental challenges.”
