Climate Change

We are support the people of Zambia to implement the commitments to the Paris Agreement on Climate Change. Our work focuses on strengthening the institutional and legal frameworks with relevant Ministries and private sector responsible for implementing initiatives towards climate change adaptation and mitigation. As an accredited entity to the Green Climate Fund (GCF) we work with Government and private sector to limit or reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and adapt to climate change through the promotion of paradigm shifts to low-emission and climate-resilient path ways.

Natural Resource Management

We are work with the Government, private sector and development partners to ensure that land, water, biodiversity and carbon sinks are protected from threats and effectively managed by national and local institutions, communities and economic actors by using sustainable forestry, wildlife, land, water and healthcare waste management practices.  We promote the use of innovative nature-based solutions for economic growth and environmental sustainability while supporting Zambia’s commitments to the global agreements such as the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) to have a meaningful impact on people’s lives including reducing emission s from deforestation and forest degradation (REDD+) to protect forest and sustain the livelihood of the people who depend on them.
