Pilot Country Details

Zambia is a landlocked country in Southern Africa, with an estimated population of 15.7 million. Much of the population lives in rural areas, but the country is rapidly urbanizing. Poverty levels remain high, 54.4% of the population lives below the poverty line, with rural and urban poverty standing at 76.6% and 23.4%, respectively.  The Zambian economy remains heavily dependent on copper mining for export revenue while the rural population has continued to rely on subsistence agriculture. However, there are efforts to diversify the economy and build stronger agricultural and manufacturing sectors. Zambia has transitioned into a lower-middle income country in recent years, yet ranks 139th out of 187 countries on the Human Development Index (0.586). During the MDG era, Zambia made commendable progress on MDG 2 and MDG 6. However, more work remains to be done on reducing poverty and inequalities and tackling threats to environmental sustainability.

Launch of the SDG PP Zambia Platform

The launch of SDG Philanthropy Platform in Zambia took place on October 20th 2016 in Lusaka, under the frame of leaving no one behind, with an emphasis on the well-being of children. Participants from government, the UN, private sector, faith-based organizations and groups, national and international non-governmental organizations, academia, foundations, and bilateral partners were present at the event.

Supported by the Conrad N Hilton Foundation, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Rockefeller Philanthropy Advisors (RPA) and the Foundation Center, the SDG Philanthropy Platform in Zambia aims to enhance engagement of the philanthropic sector with the broader national development agenda, coordinate and spur collaboration between philanthropy and other stakeholders to achieve the SDGs, with special focus on the well-being of children in Zambia.

The platform’s focus on the well-being of children is necessary and timely for Zambia in many ways. The population of Zambia is very young, with 52% being under 18. The children face many challenges including poverty, unregistered births, child marriages, malnutrition, limited access to early childhood education, limited progression between primary and secondary school, among others. (Central Statistical Office ,2015; UNICEF, 2013; UNFPA, 2015; Ministry of Gender, 2015)

The Platform is expected to foster the philanthropic sector’s engagement on issues adversely affecting the well-being of children, with the broader national development plan and contribute to enhanced coordination and the scaling up of existing interventions. It will also promote the development of new and innovative initiatives to improve the situation of the most vulnerable children in Zambia.

Current National Development Planning Process and SDG Mainstreaming

The Government of the Republic of Zambia is currently developing the 7th National Development Plan (7NDP), which will guide development priorities for the next five years (2017-2021). The plan is being viewed as a vehicle for mainstreaming SDGs and the African Union’s Agenda 2063 into Zambia’s development processes.

The 7NDP is being designed and is expected to be implemented under an integrated, multi-sectoral and more coordinated approach, shifting from a sectoral and siloed approach, for sustainable national development. This integrated approach is also in line with the move from activity-based to output-based budgeting, highlighting increased focus on development results. The UN is providing technical support to the Zambian government on how to mainstream SDGs into the plan.

To help philanthropists and other stakeholders understand the Zambian development framework better and engage with the SDGs and other in-country priorities more effectively, the platform has recently completed an SDG ecosystem mapping exercise and is currently finalising a report. The objective of the report is to provide a broad overview of the Zambian development context identifying the processes, policies, legislation, the players and structures that exist in national development planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. It also seeks to highlight challenges and opportunities, as well as entry points for further interventions.
