And Minister of Green Economy and Environment Hon. Eng. The Collins Nzovu MP said the Ministry of Green Economy and Environment is spearheading the Tourism Development Project (TDP) which aims to enhance nature based economic opportunities in emerging tourism destinations in Zambia.

“Therefore, on behalf of the Ministry of Green Economy and Environment, allow me to express our gratitude to the Global EverGreening Allaince for selecting Zambia as a host destination for their inaugural conference scheduled for March 2024 in Livingstone. The conference is built on the conversation of massive-scale environmental restoration and sustainable agricultural intensification projects,” he said in a speech read for him by Ministry of Green Economy and Environment Permanent Secretary Dr. Douty Chibamba.

Nzovu said there is urgent need for effective mitigation and adaptation measures to make climate change one of the most important existential issues not only for Zambia but also the world at large.

The Honourable Minister said land restoration is key for climate change mitigation and adaptation and therefore, welcomes the multi sectoral conversation that will serve as a great platform to share strides as Zambia and the ambitions in Land Restoration and the Environmental Protection Agenda.

He said environmental, social and economic goals can only be met when the country has healthy land resources.
