Zambia accorded Gas Project Funds

The Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA) has granted Zambia with US$1.5million in funds for the Greenhouse Gas project.

Zambia, just as in the likes of Comoros and Sudan, is among the five countries currently implementing this project which is meant to improve the transparency reporting in the conservatory sector.

At a recent interview in Chisamba, COMESA climate change advisor, Mclay Kanyangara made mention that the project began early last year and is expected to conclude by 2021.

“Zambia is one of the five countries which nominated COMESA to support them in the project and this grant has just been awarded. We are in the preparatory stages. The total amount is US$1.5 million per country,” Mclay stated.

Mclay added that COMESA is working with Zambia on this project on transparency reporting the country’s method of aid in reduction of greenhouse gas effect.

“The targeted greenhouse gases are water vapour, carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide among others. COMESA had about 7.15 million euros over a five year period to aid out to countries for various projects,” said Mclay.

COMESA is in the second year of implementation while other entities are only just starting.
