Forum to discuss climate change
Organized by the Embassy of Sweden in Lusaka, in partnership with UNDP, EU and Zambia’s Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources, a Climate Dialogue Forum will take place 7-8 June 2018. Sweden’s Ambassador for Climate Change, Lars Ronnås, will participate in the dialogue and Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI) will facilitate the discussions.
Based on the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, signed by both Zambia and Sweden and 193 other countries around the world, we look forward to discussing how we can create synergies and mobilize the willingness to invest in order to battle the challenges we all face looking at climate change and its impact on our world. Climate change is expected to have severe influence on climate-sensitive sectors such as water, energy, agriculture and health, which are crucial to Zambia’s development.
The first day of the event will take place at the Government Complex and for the second and final day we will be at UNZA. We are excited to welcome government representatives, the private sector, civil society and academia to the same room to see how we can utilize our different experiences and knowledge.
The event is not open to the general public. However, If you are interested in attending, please send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org including a motivation on why you would like to participate.
