Mr Nzovu made the appeal when the Japanese Ambassador to Zambi,a Mr. Takeuchi Kazuyuki paid a courtesy call on him yesterday.
He said Japan had advanced technology that can be employed to fight climate change in Zambia.
Mr Nzovu noted that climate change had greatly affected infrastructure development in the country and emphasised the need to build climate resilient structures to reduce the negative effects of climate change.
He also called for investment in the tourism, agriculture, forestry and energy sectors if the country was to record meaningful economic development.
