Zambia Development Impact Assessment

Countries and regions
Zambia, Sub-Saharan Africa
Action area


Case summary

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.
