Initial Conditions and Agricultural Development in Zambia, 1915-2015

Ellen Hillbom, Samuel Jenkin

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterpeer-review


Zambia, previously Northern Rhodesia, has exhibited a remarkable consistency
in the focus of its agricultural policies throughout the colonial and independence
eras. Assessing the 100 year period from 1915, this study applies a political economy framework to present evidence on the extent to which, and through
what mechanisms, initial natural resource endowments have influenced state
policies in Zambia, and how those policies have determined the state of the
contemporary agricultural sector.
