Lesotho is a place considered by many to be untouched by modern economic development but has a population that is growing at a rapid rate. This is causing them to have a shortage of food because they cannot yield enough to keep up with the growth of their population. There is a different perception between people who are a part of the local community in Lesotho and outsiders, regarding the needs of the area. Many locals do not believe that Lesotho has been isolated from the world economy and the picture of the region constructed by the development agencies is nothing like the reality. Lesotho has had many organizations come in that start and fail at implementing their desired changes. This often happens when outside organizations try to implement development projects that have worked in other places but without considering the environment they are currently active in. These projects typically fail however the “side effects” of these attempts at development usually have some benefit for the locals. This is a big issue when it comes to environmental management because often times western organizations come but are not familiar with the environment and how the locals community engages with it, so they are not able to help in the best ways. One cannot simply implement strategies that work in some regions, in all regions.
