ProjectBusiness Case for Engaging in the Market for Affordable and Green Housing Construction in Zambia

The Zambia Green Jobs Programme is a partnership between the Government of Zambia and the United Nations (UN), including the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), The United Nations Environment programme (UNEP), the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), the International Trade Centre (ITC) and the International Labour Organization (ILO).

The programme is led by the ILO and is aimed at promoting more and better jobs for inclusive and green growth in sectors where goods and services can be produced with an environmental benefit.

Project Objective

Endeva collaborated with UNCTAD to provide evidence that there is a business case for companies to engage in the market for affordable and green housing construction in Zambia.

Project Output
