Although the present high concern over economic growth in its strictly qualitative sense, as strongly emphasized to the mission by officials of the ministry of Development Planning, Zambia seems to limit the amount of attention being given to the quality of environment, yet there is a reasonable amount of environmental activity that can form a helpful basis for the development of an integrated environmental machinery. These activities include some research work on sextain aspects of environment such as water pollution, dust and noise pollution and lead poisoning, conducted by various authorities. Secondly, certain control measures are'being exercised by the mining industry itself, to minimize the various kinds of hazards involved in the mining industry.
