Government, UNDP partner on trees in Zambia
Government in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) is undertaking a five-year forest regeneration project covering 15,000 hectares in Serenje and Chitambo districts in Central Province. Ministry of Lands, Natural Resources and Environmental Protection permanent secretary Trevor Kaunda said close to K1.1 million will be spent on the project. “This project we are doing with the UNDP and we are looking at regeneration of forests. We are looking at areas where trees have been cut down or in some cases where we need to protect forests,” Mr Kaunda said.
