During his travel in Zambia, CP Haakon is focusing on the UN Millennium Development Goals and the fight against poverty. After his introduction at the University of Zambia he invited youngsters to give their perspectives on what is needed to achieve the objectives both globally and in Zambia. There was great enthusiasm from the audience, and CP Haakon takes the input on in his role as Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Programme.

The Post Newspapers Zambia - Latest News, Politics, Business, Sports, Photos, Videos » Haakon happy to see proper clinics in Zambia
"I am very happy to be here in Zambia and I was looking forward to coming here. It is so wonderful to see the good work that is making a difference in people's lives. I know that the wonderful facilities I have seen here today work to safeguard the health of the people. I have seen that the facilities here focus on issues such as HIV and AIDS, TB… a lot of important work is being done", Prince Haakon said.

Malaria, TB fight impresses Norway
"I was looking forward to coming to Zambia and yesterday [Tuesday], I had a great time in Lusaka. I met the First Lady [Dr Christine Kaseba], who was kind enough to accompany me to check on some clinics in Chongwe.
My focus of coming here is to see how you intend to achieve the MDGs and how diseases like malaria, AIDS and TB are affecting the country. Zambia is making a lot of progress on these issues," Prince Haakon said.
And Prince Haakon said he is also impressed that students at UNZA have brilliant ideas that can help to improve the country’s economy.
"I also went to the university [UNZA], where I met students who have lots of ideas that are aimed at boosting the economy of Zambia", he said.

Yesterday, he inspected climate change adaptation projects in Siakunzwe village in Kazungula funded by the UNDP.

OMG!!!
I knew that he loves dangerous sports, but this jump to see was very formidable... I would like to know before such an dangerous action should he get a permission from his father the king or from the government or from his bodyguard? Maybe is he better covered against downfall as normal people?

He does need permission from his security detail and in this newspaper article: Haakons Afrika - Aftenposten about this trip they wrote that one of his bodyguards jumped before the Crown Prince to make sure everything worked!
