There are several reasons why agricultural-driven economies like Zimbabwe should have strong policies on agriculture and food systems. Policies provide a coordination framework without which it will be difficult for agricultural stakeholders and value chain actors to collaborate towards a common purpose. Policies also create a platform and information sharing culture that enables departments in the MLAFWRD to leverage their overall scale and bring to bear their collective resources, skills and knowledge.
It is in this vein that the Centre for Agriculture and Food Policy (CAFP) exists to develop, sharpen and unpack Zimbabwe’s agriculture and food systems landscape.
