Zambia’s economy performed relatively well within the region despite the decline in the growth rate. This decline was largely a result of lower production in the mining sector compared to the year before as well as slower growth in manufacturing and public services.
Embracing green growth can secure strong, stable and sustainable development. An increasing number of developing countries have formulated and/or implemented innovative policies to pursue green growth, notably in Africa. Zambia, in particular, is committed to drawing up an Inclusive Green Growth Strategy (IGGS) that builds upon a nationally-defined and comprehensive definition of green growth.
