Zambia Environmental Management Agency (ZEMA) formerly Environmental Council of Zambia (ECZ) has the mandate to do all such things as are necessary to ensure the sustainable management of natural resource and protection of the environment, and prevention and control of pollution. It is to this effect that the agency operates an Information and Documentation Centre (IDC) to furnish our members of staff and clients with the necessary information to carry out our mandate.


The IDC falls under special libraries which means it provides specialized information resources on a particular subject and serves a specialized and limited clientele. It is for this reason that our library only admits clients that are studying or researching on environmental related subjects and admission is free.


The collection is purely an environmental one covering subjects such as; environmental planning, climate change, biodiversity, fresh water resource, waste management, pollution, sanitation, soils, environmental law, agricultural practices, environmental monitoring, agro-industry. We also have a collection of our annual reports and various district state of environment outlook reports and many more documents both local and exotic.
