Catalyzing climate action in Zambia: Webinar and related resources


This webinar provides a high level overview of the development impact assessment (DIA) framework used to support rural electrification projects in Zambia, as well as case studies from representatives of the Rural Electrification Authority of Zambia (REA) and the Center for Energy, Environment and Engineering, Zambia (CEEEZ), detailing the challenges and key successes of their DIA framework. This webinar also describes application of the framework to support Zambia’s Intended Nationally Determined Contribution (INDC) and other climate actions.

Understanding the impacts of low emission development strategies on broader development goals is of growing interest to countries around the world. These goals include reducing poverty, improving health and local environmental quality, expanding energy and water access, and facilitating gender equality. DIA is a process that explores interactions between development goals and low emission development strategies. The process supports informed decision-making by considering how policies and programs intended to meet one goal may impact other development priorities.
