Lusaka is hosting learning lab 3 from 27th to 29th November,2017.
EXPLORING CLIMATE & WATER IN LUSAKA FROM VARIOUS PERSPECTIVES.
The Learning Lab is targeted at key decision makers in the water and energy sectors. In the first Learning Lab, the theme of inadequate water supply, low sanitation, unregulated abstraction, and flooding in informal settlements in Lusaka were identified as some of the burning issues. These issues were identified with the objective to collaboratively produce information that will help to remedy these problems, particularly under conditions of climate change. The second Learning Lab Sessions further explored this theme in an interactive manner. Drawing on the experience of all stakeholders involved, we aim to jointly define a way forward to find solutions for some pressing challenges in the water and energy sectors of Lusaka in the upcoming third learning lab.
