The Zimbabwe Agricultural Competitiveness Program (Zim-ACP) is a 4.5 year project funded by USAID, implemented by DAI and its partners designed to provide technical support to facilitate increased competitiveness of the agriculture sector through:
- Improvements in the enabling agro-business environment.
- Improvement of skills training and of agro-business skills and agro-productivity.
To achieve the above, the Zim-ACP initiative has three components:
- Supporting and strengthening of farmers’ organisations, commodity associations and agribusiness associations and assisting them to develop their analytical and advocacy capacity, with the ultimate goal of improving the enabling agri-business environment for Zimbabwean farmers, agribusiness and investors.
- Increasing the efficiencies in agricultural marketing, developing and applying improved technologies and enhancing the capacity of market institutional infrastructure.
- Enhancing the capacity of business service providers to deliver demand driven trainings and technical assistance at a farm and farmer level.
