Improving city signage
We are working with the Council to enforce bye-laws to improve the appearance and quality of existing advertising signs and billboards as well as enforce bye-laws for their sites and maintenance. New “Welcome to Livingstone” signs and standard international tourist attraction signs will be added in due course.
The Mosi-Oa-Tunya Road is the main thoroughfare through the city taking visitors to the Falls and our National Park. We are engaging the council and businesses, as well as volunteers to help us landscape the 1 km long road to make it a spectacular colourfest.
CIGZambia (Cities for Infrastructure and Growth),
A UK funded programme, starting in early 2021 will provide technical assistance within the city to improve the processes and infrastructure at the Victoria Falls border post with Zimbabwe. They are also investigating rehabilitation and promotion of the city’s historical centre.
Waste management and Recycling
The issue of poorly managed waste is a global one with Livingstone having its own problems. Many volunteers are regularly seen at “Clean Ups” around the city, within the National Park and at the Victoria Falls site. Destination Livingstone is helping to co-ordinate such events but has an interest in working on more recycling of plastic and cardboard within the city.
