Food security in Zimbabwe
The project in Maincaland, Zimbabwe from 2008 - 2010 aimed to help people to secure water and harvest. Within a span of about two decades, Zimbabwe has turned from a vibrant, efficient and highly diversified economy and net exporter of food to a nation reliant on copious amounts of food aid and technical support in all sectors. The project attempts to counter the catastrophic demise of food production and livelihood conditions which has affected the rural population most adversely. The overall objective (OO) of the project is thus to contribute towards a “reduction of the emergency situation in selected communities in the province of Manicaland”.
