WHAT WE DO
The ZATP project aims to contribute to increased market linkages and firm growth in the country’s agribusiness by:
Beneficiaries of the project are emerging and poor farmers and SMEs in the agribusiness sector as well as Producer organizations such as cooperatives or other farmer groups. In addition, the project will also benefit larger communities that will be using public infrastructure that will be facilitated through the project in order to support market linkages.
ZATP beneficiaries will therefore include women and youths in all the implementation areas where the project will rollout interventions. We will be very keen to see that these groups are well represented at individual farmer level as well as SMEs.
The Project’s activities are open for participation to all eligible producers and SMEs from around the country. Its outreach activities and initial target areas focus on regions whose populations have high poverty levels and at the same time possess agro-processing activities. The initial regions of focus are Lusaka, Copperbelt, Southern, Central and Eastern Province. As the project evolves, its activities will be extended to other areas around the country.
