IMPACTS OF CLIMATE CHANGE TO BE MORE ADVERSE ON WATER AND ENERGY DEPENDANT SECTORS – KALUSA

Government says the impacts of climate change will have  more adverse effects on sectors that depend on water- energy and food Nexus.

This is due to climate change effects in water resources availability and the inter linkages between energy production, food production and water availability.

Water Development and Sanitation Permanent Secretary Joe Kalusa said the impact of climate change on Zambia has primarily been felt through increased intensity and frequency of floods and droughts.

He said therefore there is  need to build resilience and respond to the negative impacts of climate change.

Mr Kalusa said it is necessary for Zambia to take advantage of existing global efforts to deal with the scourge through the Paris Agreement on climate by mobilising resources to implement Zambia’s water based nationally determined contributions.
