UNDP Resident Representative Lionel Laurens made the commitment when he paid a courtesy call on Green Economy and Environment Minister Collins Nzovu in Lusaka.
Mr Laurens also assured of UNDP’s willingness to support Zambia’s chairmanship for the African Group of Negotiators (AGN) on Climate Change, and on the formulation of the law on climate change.
