Zambia Agriculture Finance Diagnostic

The Zambia Agriculture Finance Diagnostic identifies several key actions the Government can take to realize these opportunities. The high priority actions include providing incentives to the private sector to deliver financial services in rural areas, strengthening the capacity of the recently-established Zambia Credit Guarantee Scheme to effectively serve the agriculture sector, and strengthening the design and implementation of the weather index insurance scheme. The report also recommends that the Government consider developing an agriculture finance action plan that is adequately resourced and allocates clear implementation responsibilities.
