Lesotho Technology Needs Assessment Stakeholders Workshop and Launch

Technology has become a catalyst in our day-to-day operations, especially in core sectors that drive the economy of each country. New and modified existing technologies form news headlines each day and those technologies include both what things are made of and how things are made. Technologies are mainly aimed to enhance human capabilities or enable humans to perform tasks they could only dream of without it. However, not all countries have access to or are able to deploy new technologies even if they wish to due to their limited resources.
