Abstract

The Republic of Zambia is a State Party to several international agreements relating to space activities through accession. However, being a state party alone is not suffice, therefore, Zambia has to fulfil the fundamental principles enshrined in the various international agreements relating to outer space through a domestication process. Consequently, an analysis will be made on the international agreements relating to outer space acceded to by Zambia, and the extent to which Zambia domesticated them into domestic law. Furthermore, Zambia has adopted some institutional and policy framework at national level in order to implement the continental efforts to promote African Space Programme and implement international agreements.
