In the first quarter, a number of initiatives will lead to greater financial support going directly to farming communities in the eight Riparian States that share the Zambezi River Basin. These are Angola, Botswana, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. We anticipate the creation of bankable climate smart infrastructure investment projects targeting the energy, water supply, agriculture, and nature-based solutions sectors as part of the Zambezi Investment Programme spearheaded by the Zambezi Watercourse Commission (ZAMCOM).
