Project: Lesotho Development Impact Bond for Stunting

Lesotho faces a severe malnutrition issue, which has resulted in stunting of children under five years of age. As of 2014, one third of children under 5 were stunted (DHS, 2014).

The Government of Lesotho through the Ministry of Health, in partnership with World Vision Lesotho and UNICEF is interested in assessing the suitability of one or more social impact financing mechanisms, namely a Development Impact Bond (DIB) and or other results-based social financing alternatives, to address the underlying causes of malnutrition and stunting in children under five years in Lesotho.

Limestone has been hired to conduct a feasibility assessment for this project.
