Zambia Government Jobs - Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock - 11/25/2016



Prime Consulting International Ltd, NIRAS Sweden AB and NIRAS Zambia Ltd have been engaged by the New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade in partnership with the Ministry of Fisheries and Livestock to implement a transformative dairy programme.
The Zambian Dairy Transformation Programme (ZDTP) will focus on supporting smallholder farmers to improve their productivity, milk quality and linkage to urban markets, driving the further commercialisation of the smallholder based Zambian dairy sector.
Whilst there is clearly a large difference in scale, there remains a great opportunity to share New Zealand’s well-developed dairy business and technical skills, knowledge and expertise with an emerging but comparable (pasture based) production system in Zambia.
Increased volume of milk supplied will reduce transaction costs and increased quality will improve market acceptance. Strong partnerships will be formed with all key stakeholders (private sector, Government and NGOs) in order to improve effectiveness, efficiency, impact and sustainability of outcomes.
