Environment and climate change needs assessment study for Mukuba University: A document review


Phanuel Chuka Hakwendenda

The purpose of the needs assessment study was to ascertain the responsiveness of the newly introduced Bachelor of Science in Environment and Climate Change (B.Sc. ECC) programme to the demands of Mukuba University and the labor market in Zambia. The study employed a cross sectional design, utilizing desk/document reviews covering local and international contexts, executive speeches from cabinet and statutory instruments. Like-minded stakeholders and institutions with interest in the field of climate change were also consulted. In order to identify existing training available in similar programmes elsewhere, efforts were made to trace as many curricula from other learning institutions in the region. Documents were then searched manually for other information relevant to climate change and the environment. The study found that the B.Sc. ECC programme is one, among many other similar programmes, that responded to the demands of Mukuba University and the labor market in Zambia. The study strongly recommended that the programme should be allowed to proceed to give chance to many prospective students who would want to be trained in this critical area in order to supplement the efforts of other climate change and environmental management experts.
