Zambia has signed an agreement with the Sustainable Development Goals -SDGs- Centre for Africa to host a regional office.

The office will advocate for the implementation of SDGs in the Southern African region, in line with the principles of African Union -AU-‘s Agenda 2063.

ZNBC’s Michael Kaumba reports from New York, USA, that Foreign Affairs Minister, Joe Malanji said government subscribes to the global principles in the fight against poverty.

Mr. Malanji said it is for this reason that government has developed the Seventh National Development Plan, as the blue print for the country’s development and it is aligned to the SDGs.

He said government is implementing several social protection programmes, aimed at empowering women and youth.

And sustainable development goals center for Africa Director General Dr. Belau Begashaw praised the Zambian government for agreeing to host the regional center and committing itself to fighting poverty.

Earlier SDG United Nations Advocate Dho Yongshin said she supports calls for the establishment of the Korean embassy in Zambia saying the move will enhance efforts to promote trade and tourism as a tool of fighting poverty.

  1. I have been tracking specifically SDG Number 7 Globally and specifically for Zambia the results have been fairly impressive but below expectations

  2. PF should stop stealing public money. Stop being selfish. Be considerate of the plight of the citizens.
    You have stolen enough already.
    Edgar Lungu pray for yourself.
