Food security: Improvements through conservation farming in Zambia

A case study sharing learning from the design and delivery of a food security programme

2007 Available in English

In 2002, a needs assessment by a Tearfund partner in Zambia identified that specific farming practices were contributing heavily to the lack of food in the area. It also identified that some farmers had managed to have a successful harvest despite drought conditions, due to their long-term use of conservation farming methods.

This short case study explains how this partner, the Evangelical Fellowship of Zambia, worked alongside village committees and the government to design, implement and review a food security programme based on the practice of conservation farming.
