Zambia - National Climate Change Profile


The Republic of Zambia (henceforth ‘Zambia’, shown below in Figure 1-1) is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, bordered by Namibia, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to the south, Malawi and Tanzania to the east/north-east, Democratic Republic of Congo to the north, and Angola to the west. Zambia’s economy is largely based on the country’s diverse and rich natural resources, particularly the deposits of copper, nickel, and tin which supports the mining industry, as well as an increasingly diversified and modernised commercial agriculture sector.
