Zambia - Sustainable Livestock Infrastructure Management Project’s (SLIMP) - Summary ESMP
The Zambian Government’s development agenda are articulated in the National Vision 2030 and the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP: 2017-2021). The National Vision 2030 sets the long-term vision which reflects the understanding, aspirations and determination of the people to be a “prosperous middle-income country by 2030”. The main goal of 7NDP (2017-2021) is to create a diversified and resilient economy for sustained growth and socio economic transformation driven among others, by agriculture. The 7NDP departs from sectoral-based planning to an integrated (multi-sectoral) development approach under the theme “Accelerating development efforts towards the Vision 2030 without leaving anyone behind”. The integrated approach recognises the multi-faceted and interlinked nature of sustainable development which calls for interventions to be tackled simultaneously through a coordinated approach to implementing development programmes.
