GET FiT Zambia Update – Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Impacts

With the whole world facing the unprecedented impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, GET FiT Zambia will inevitably feel the impacts.

Impacts have already materialized with the need to announce a temporary postponement of the launch of the GET FiT Zambia Small Hydro Tender Request for Proposal (RfP) which was scheduled for launch in the first quarter (Q1) of 2020. Additionally, activities such as the Solar PV local capacity building workshops have been postponed.

The Secretariat in Lusaka, while working with the Government of Zambia to monitor the evolution of COVID-19 following World Health Organisation (WHO) and the Ministry of Health (MOH) guidelines in the coming weeks, remains fully operational and the team remains available online.

In collaboration with the Ministry of Energy (MOE), the GET FiT Secretariat will continue to exercise all possible efforts to limit the impacts on the Programme. Any major effects on the implementation will be announced on the website.
