RESEARCH OBJECTIVES

For more detailed information about our research in Zimbabwe, download our country brochure. APRA is working in Zimbabwe to conduct quantitative and qualitative research to:

  • Analyse the effects of different forms of agricultural commercialisation on poverty, food and nutrition security, and women’s empowerment;
  • Explore how different pathways of agricultural commercialisation have evolved over time to assess the dynamics of agrarian change, and how these have influenced the livelihood opportunities and outcomes for rural men and women;
  • Analyse how agricultural mechanisation is being promoted in Zimbabwe, and what the effects of this have been on the development of commercialisation pathways and processes of agrarian change;
  • Explore the different pathways young people use to establish themselves in farming or associated economic activities in areas where agriculture is already highly commercialised.
