8034-01. WWF SRJS Zambia

IUCN-NL and WWF-NL work together in a Dutch-funded Strategic Partnership called SRJS: Shared Resources, Joint Solutions (2017-2020). In SRJS, ESIA/SEA processes are seen as relevant instruments to implement a multi-stakeholder landscape approach. The Netherlands Commission for Environmental Assessment (the NCEA) has an agreement with SRJS to develop joint capacity building programmes and Zambia is one of the focus countries and regions. In Zambia, the NCEA cooperates with WWF Zambia to further increase the capacity in ESIA/SEA systems and practice. This cooperation takes place within the framework of the Zambia Basin Freshwater Strategy (2016-2020) of WWF Zambia and Mozambique. A key partner in this cooperation is the Zambia Environmental Management Authority (ZEMA). The activities in Zambia mainly focus on strengthening CSO's skills in engaging in ESIA/SEA processes, ZEMA's capacity to fulfill their mandate and improvements in the regulatory framework.
