This report summarizes the main activities implemented under the NEPAD–FAO Fish Programme (Support to the Implementation of the Strategy for Fisheries and Aquaculture in Africa-NFFP), focusing particularly on how its Output B4 “Mechanisms established for impro ving the performance of the fisheries and aquaculture post-harvest chain and regional trade” has been achieved.

    No results found.

    This study forms part of seven country case studies carried out as part of the FAO’s From Protection to Production (PtoP) programme. Zambia was selected as one of the countries given the substantial role played by agriculture there with regard to employment and the economy, and the growing portfolio of social protection measures which have been implemented against a backdrop of persistently high levels of poverty. Of particular interest was the implicit sequencing of programmes from cash transfe rs, to the Food Security Pack and finally, one of the main agricultural programmes over the past decade – the Farmer Input Support Programme. The analysis in Zambia followed a common approach and framework set out as part of the country case studies. This involved looking at the context (including policies and programmes), coordination and outcomes. This was carried out through an initial desk-based review, which involved reviewing key documents covering development strategy, agricultural and so cial protection policy and research papers. This was followed by a two-week in-country data collection exercise involving a number of key informant interviews (KIIs) with ministry staff, cooperating partners and civil society and focus group discussions with local communities (FGDs). The study involved looking across both the agricultural and social protection spheres at the national and subnational levels.
