Caritas Zambia strategic issues have been clustered around four main areas which also form Caritas Zambia programmes namely; Democracy and Governance, The Church and State, Economic and Social Accountability, and Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation. In addition, there is a fifth programme which provides support to all the other four programmes and is called Organisational Development.
Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation Programme (LCCAP)
The aim of this programme is to have improved livelihoods (increased income, food security and nutrition). The LCCAP areas of focus are:
- Sustainable Agriculture: The focus is on the promotion of sustainable farming methods such as conservation and organic agriculture, promotion of farming as a business, improved access to irrigation water and technologies and promotion of pro poor agriculture policies.
- Climate Change Adaptation: The focus is on promoting Disaster Risk Reduction and Climate change adaptation strategies in all the 11 dioceses.
- Alternative Livelihoods: This area will continue to focus on the promotion of entrepreneurship skills development and income generating activities among diocesan animators.
