Zambian President Calls for Action on Climate Change
President Edgar Lungu has called for increased affirmative action among countries in the Southern African region to address the increasing effects of climate change.
Mr Lungu said the effects of climate change had adversely affected many countries, and cited Zambia and Malawi which had not been spared, thereby undermining the growth of the agriculture and energy sectors.
The two countries, he said, shared common values and needed to work closely to find more lasting solutions to increase food security being threatened by climate change.
"Our core interest demands that we meet regularly to talk about our common interests. Obviously we share so much between Zambia and Malawi.
"One of the things we are meeting on is as a result of climatic changes," Mr Lungu said.
