Welcome to Issue 27 of ZAGP News, the newsletter for the European Union funded Zimbabwe Agricultural Growth Programme (ZAGP).
In this issue, we focus on the scale of operations of the projects under ZAGP, as we make strides towards developing a diversified and efficient agriculture sector that promotes inclusive green economic growth.
Working across five value-chains (beef, dairy, goats, pork and poultry) and two support projects focusing on (i) animal health and food safety and (ii) improving the link between agricultural research, education and extension, the programme is tackling various challenges affecting the country’s livestock sector.
The programme has set up various entities and is implementing innovative strategies to address the constraints within the country’s livestock sector. Broadly, the interventions focus on increasing profitability, building the capacity of farmers, service institutions, and the private sector through increased investment, institutional reforms, and policy alignment.
We hope you find this issue informative. Stay safe!
