The country team has contributed to the project activities with the following papers and presentations:

Centre For Energy, Environment and Engineering Zambia Ltd (CEEEZ) is a non governmental organisation which is independent and non profit making in its activities. Its major activities involve collaborating with Government and various institutions in the country and overseas in the fields of energy, environment and engineering. The specific role of CEEEZ is to investigate, analyze and make useful conclusions and policy recommendations on energy, environment and engineering concerns. In addition, CEEEZ carries out studies, research and development, consultancy and training in the areas of energy, environment and engineering.

Energy is a vital input in economic development. Production and use of energy often leads to environmental degradation. In many cases government, energy producers and industrialists are not aware of sound energy and environment management. In addition, they often lack technical expertise to derive sound policy analysis which is necessary to support relevant practices. There is need, therefore, to have independent research institutions that can co-operate with government and industrialists in finding means of ensuring harmony between economic development and the protection of the environment. CEEEZ works to fill this gap.

CEEEZ has been involved in a number of consultancies on energy and environment issues among them being the Zambia Country Study on Climate Change a greenhouse gas emission study supported by Deutsche Gesellschaft fur Technische Zusammenarbeit (GTZ).

The Government of the Republic of Zambia is committed to the UNFCCC and sees CDM as a key element in this process. It also sees CDM as a cost-effective means by which to benefit from the transfer of technology from the Annex I countries, and the financing of key development, particularly in the mining and agricultural sectors. Beyond actively participating in all COPs under the UNFCCC, Zambia is trying to set the framework for CDM. In February 1999, the Minister of Environment and Natural Resources held a one-day workshop on CDM with all relevant ministries and stakeholder. Governments and stakeholders’ priorities for baseline development include household energy, transport, agriculture and forestry, industry, and mining. For mitigation and sustainable development, key stakeholders have prioritised household energy linked to forestry, and the mining, industrial and transport sectors.
