Development Aid from People to People in Zambia, DAPP, Managing Director Elise Soerensen says in 2023, DAPP, through its agriculture and climate change initiatives, worked with over 30,000 rural farmer families in their efforts to increase and diversify their production.

Speaking during the launch of the DAPP 2023 Progress report today, Ms. Soerensen said Zambia, like many other countries in the continent, has not been spared from the adverse effects of climate change which has led to drought and food insecurity.

“To enhance food security, reduce poverty and increase resilience against climate shocks and hazards, our agriculture and climate change initiatives place farmers and their families at the center of all activities”, said Ms. Soerensen.

She said DAPP has for the past 37 years been complementing government’s efforts towards improving the living conditions of millions of people living in poverty among others.

Meanwhile, Ms. Soerensen said in the period under review, the project scaled up the Farmer Service Centers Model with 143 micro-aggregators trained in crop marketing servicing with input and supporting marketing on crops and other produce.

She also said a total of 450 tons of crops were marketed through these farmer service centers.

And speaking at the same event, some beneficiaries have disclosed to RCV News that they have benefitted greatly from the agriculture and climate change initiative which has also enabled them to take care of their families.
