Abstract

Using the SLEMSA framework as a model for combining the influence of the variables, the information was organized on a 14 x 14 km grid to give an erosion hazard map of Lesotho. Practical and methodological difficulties are discussed. Slope and rainfall are the dominant factors, and they largely explain the variation in " Erosion Hazard Units " from 64 in the southern lowlands to 3230 in the north-eastern mountains. Lesotho is confirmed as having the highest erosion hazard of any single country in southern and central Africa
