Zambia's leadership on LEDS
Case StudyMulti stakeholder development impact assessment
The Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection led an inclusive multi-stakeholder process in collaboration with the Centre for Energy, Environment, and Engineering of Zambia (CEEEZ) to assess co-benefits of INDC mitigation actions using the Development Impacts Assessment (DIA) visual tool, developed in collaboration with the LEDS Global Partnership.
The tool provides a framework to help stakeholders identify and communicate the impacts (positive and negative) that LEDS actions may have on development priorities thus assisting decision makers in exploring potential trade-offs in policies. The development impact assessment process provided key information to prioritize actions included in Zambia’s INDC, with outputs presented in the document below.
Case StudyEnhanced LEDS and climate change coordination
Acknowledging that development of a successful low emission development strategy (LEDS) requires coordination across all sectors of government and involvement of a wide range of key stakeholders, the Government of Zambia has established the Inter Ministerial Climate Change Secretariat (ICCS), comprising members of staff from key Ministries dealing with climate change. The ICCS was placed within the Ministry of Finance but now sits under the new Ministry of National Development Planning to provide overall coordination support to all sectors.
