Kafue benefits from climate change program

Government says it is implementing a five year climate resilience program worth millions of Dollars in the country through the Ministry of Finance.
 
Kafue acting District Commissioner, Ngoni Moyo, says the program   is targeted at the communities in districts and the country at large that are experiencing climate change.
 
The acting District Commissioner said this during a six-day workshop for climate change stakeholders in Kafue.
 
Mr Moyo explained that the developmental project is being implemented in two sub-basins of Kafue and Barotse.
 
He further said the Kafue sub-basin project is being implemented in 11 pilot districts of which Kafue and Chibombo are beneficiaries.
 
The acting District Commissioner has urged all stakeholders to actively participate in the activities to address climate change issues.
 
Mr Moyo re-affirmed government's plans to domesticate international conventions on climate change.
 
Speaking earlier, National Climate Change Adaptation specialist, Martin Sishekanu, assured government that the project will help to reduce risks on those reliant on climate sensitive sectors especially the vulnerable communities.
 
The US $38 million project is being funded by the African Development Bank.
