Conference overview Background: CBR Africa Network (CAN) is an organization that works to promote information sharing on CBR/disability activities in Africa. Serving as the African regional affiliate of the CBR Global Network, CAN is ideally aimed at providing lessons that inform improvement in service delivery to enhance the lives of persons with disabilities. To effect information sharing, CAN organises CBR Africa conferences. Five CBR conferences have been successfully organized in different African countries (2001 – Uganda, 2004 – Malawi, 2007-South Africa, 2010 – Nigeria and 2015 – Kenya) by CBR Africa Network (CAN) in collaboration with governments of the host countries, WHO, CBM, NAD, Handicap International and other local and international stakeholders. The 6thCBR Africa conference held under the theme “CBR for resilience building and sustainable development: Leave no one behind” provides an opportunity for participants to share information on the various challenges experienced and existing capacities to enhance resilience for the attainment of the sustainable development goals. The conference is co-organised by CAN and the government of Zambia in collaboration with the disability/CBR stakeholders in Zambia including Disabled people’s organizations (DPOs), national and international NGOs and Development partners, UN agencies, media institutions, disability service providers, Civil Society Organisations, embassies and the business community among other stakeholders. This conference is timely and will inform the current debate on the paradigm shift from the concept of CBR (Community-Based Rehabilitation) to CBID (Community-Based Inclusive Development). Governments are encouraged to ensure effective representation to engage in this important dialogue on contemporary issues relating to disability inclusion and sustainable development to inform an effective transition. This 6thCBR Africa conference will provide an opportunity for Persons with disabilities, governments, service providers, academia, community development agencies, development partners and all other stakeholders to experience shared learning to enhance the lives of persons with disabilities.
CAN organises CBR conferences in Africa to facilitate the development of strong local and international partnership between stakeholders as a platform for information networking. These conferences bring people together from various nations to share experiences and, in the process, create a basis for further talks, meetings and productive interaction for mutual benefit.

These are highlights from the last conference
Zambia is located in Southern Africa, east of Angola, south of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, a landlocked country of rugged terrain and diverse wildlife, with many parks and safari areas. Zambia has 8 neighbours, and is fondly referred to as the warm heart of Africa, home to some of the finest Safari experiences on the planet, including face to face encounters with Nature at its most wild. Zambia is acknowledged as one of the safest countries in the world to visit, Zambians are welcoming people living in peace and harmony. Whilst Zambia is now one of Africa’s most urbanised countries, much of the country remains wild, underdeveloped and unspoilt, with a great percentage of land allocated by the government to conservation projects, national parks and game management areas. Many of these parks are home to incredible numbers of Africa’s most-feted wild mammals and extraordinary birdlife. One of the most water rich countries in Africa, Zambia has 5 vast lakes, 3 major rivers, 17 waterfalls and various wetland areas. Zambia is one of the fastest growing economies on the African continent and tourism is crucial to the country’s on-going development. The capital is Lusaka. The country has an estimated population of 16.21 million (2015) World Bank. The Currency is the Zambian kwacha. .
The Climate The general height of the land gives Zambia a more pleasant climate than that experienced in most tropical countries. There are three seasons – cool and dry from May to August, hot and dry from September to November, and warm and wet from December to April. Only in the Valleys of the Zambezi and Luangwa is there excessive heat, particularly in October and, in the wet season, a high humidity. In the warm wet season, frequent heavy showers and thunderstorms occur, followed by spells of bright sunshine
