 The Federation of Northern , Southern Rhodesia and Nyasaland is an important landmark in the history of Zambia and the region.

One of the most important lessons that Zambia provides to its neighbors in the Southern African Development Community (SADC) region and in Africa as a whole is that of peaceful co-existence despite  having over 70 ethnic groups.

  As a member of the SADC region, Zambia has contributed immensely towards the achievement of independence of other SADC member states as well as playing a significant role of peace negotiation efforts for its neighboring countries.

Zambia is a full member of the African Development Bank, COMESA, Common Wealth to name but a few.

Having joined the United Nations in December 1694, Zambia has supported the UN Peacekeeping missions in Africa and beyond.
