- NIVA-rapport 
This is an appraisal of the environmental component of the Lusaka City Implementation Plan under the Habitat guided programme "Managing Water for African Cities". The objective of this appraisal was to ensure the conformity of the plan with the objectives of the Regional Project and Zambia's needs and to explore the availability of domestic resources (human, institutional, and financial) required for efficient project implementation. The appraisal recommends that the design of the city implementation plan should include an inception process involving Zambian partner institutions and stakeholders, since Zambian ownership to the plan is essential to its successful implementation. It is proposed that the city plan should take a step-wise and action oriented approach. It should start with the community based groundwater management component to demonstrate results on the ground in the selected urban communities before embarking on the subsequent large-scale integrated groundwater management intervention. An immediate action will be to establish the environmental task team and appoint a task leader who will act as the main driving force in the City Plan implementation process.
