Agribusiness Commercial Legal and Institutional Reform (AgCLIR) - Zambia
In November 2010, USAID sponsored an Agribusiness Commercial and Institutional Reform (AgCLIR) diagnostic in Zambia for the purpose of identifying key legal, regulatory, and institutional issues impacting productivity, efficiency, and opportunity in the agricultural sector. The diagnostic takes a cross-sector approach to determining the constraints within the enabling environment for agricultural enterprises. The resulting report lays out a path to reform through prioritized and practical recommendations for Zambia’s government, private sector and donor community. The AgCLIR recommendations are supplemented by a qualitative scorecard of the strengths and weaknesses in the country’s agricultural sector.
