    The objective of the NAMA is to reduce emissions from the agricultural sector in Zambia.

    Activities: (2017 - 2023)
    The NAMA aims to:

    • reduce GHG emissions from agriculture through promotion of use of fertilisers with high nutrient efficiencies and use of improved crop varieties and improved management practices through conservation agriculture;
    • reduce GHG emissions from livestock through introduction and promotion of pasture conservation and through improved breeds coupled with integrated pest and disease control;
    • reduce GHG emissions through use of improved manure management (i.e. biogas production);
    • engage relevant stakeholders on policies related to scaling up sustainable agriculture and GHG emissions reduction.

    Capacity development will entail:

    • research in improved crop varieties that can tolerate climate change
    • improved soil and water management practices
    • improvement of pastures and livestock with lower methane production
    • improvement in the control of pests and diseases for livestock
