PPCR Pilot Country Meeting - March 2012 in Livingstone, Zambia 

The fifth meeting of pilot countries and regions participating in the Pilot Program for Climate Resilience (PPCR) took place on March 12-13, 2012 in Livingstone, Zambia. The event included a field trip to local communities impacted by floods and droughts organized by the Government of Zambia on March 14, 2012.

The meeting objectives were to provide a space for countries to discuss and prepare for the challenges and opportunities of maintaining a programmatic approach in the implementation of their PPCR Strategic Programs; and to exchange views on the design and implementation of systems to monitor results and manage knowledge. In addition, a segment on climate information systems and hydro-meteorological services was organized in recognition of the large proportion of PPCR pilot countries that plan to make investments in this area.
