Zambia - Agriculture Productivity and Market Enhancement Project (APAMEP) - Executive SESA Summary
The Government of Zambia has prioritised agriculture among the key sectors that would spur economic growth and reduce poverty. To this effect, a National Agricultural and Cooperative Policy was enacted in 2004 calling for the development of an efficient, competitive and sustainable agriculture sector through strengthening farmer organisations and development of infrastructure in high potential agricultural areas. The Government intends to provide support to link farmers and producers to markets as a sustainable way of reducing poverty by improving their incomes, increasing agricultural production and sustaining economic growth.
