An outline map of Zambia.


CACCI in Zambia was officially launched on September 2, 2022 by the Minister of Green Economy and Environment. ANAPRI, through its member center IAPRI, is supporting the Multi-stakeholder Climate Change Technical Committee (MSCCTC) to enhance the development and implementation of the country’s NDC and NAP.  ANAPRI/IAPRI is providing technical support to the MSCCTC to develop a more realistic and trackable NDC and NAP Implementation Results Frameworks. This involves providing guidance on the choice of indicators and metrics, baselining of the final set of selected indicators and ex ante analysis to identify pathways to achieve mitigation and adaptation targets with attention to socioeconomic impacts and tradeoffs.  In addition, ANAPRI/IAPRI is helping to strengthen the capacities needed for data gathering and analysis and support for stakeholder coordination.
