The Zambian government recognizes that broad-based economic growth is needed to reduce poverty and improve food security for millions of Zambians. To do this, the government, with the support of USAID, is focusing on increasing farmer incomes, particularly for smallholder farmers who depend heavily on subsistence agriculture. Without a reasonable income that can act as a buffer for rural families, a poor harvest, low market prices, or other issues can lead to food insecurity, malnutrition, sickness, and a continuing cycle of poverty.
