Read, Debate: Engage.


Zambia, a landlocked country in Sub Saharan Africa has held a different story to that of many of its neighbouring nations – one of relative peace and stability, away from civil war in post-colonial eras. This has earned Zambia a reputation as a nation of political stability. 

As the second-largest producer of Copper, Zambia has experienced rapid economic growth, as well as the world's fastest-growing populations, with the UN projecting that its population will triple by 2050. However, despite this massive growth, two-thirds of Zambians are still living in poverty. 

Agriculture is a massive industry in the country, offering jobs for over 60 per cent of the country's labour population.
