Switzerland helps bring about climate-resilient agriculture in Zimbabwe

03 Feb 2024  |  SWI swissinfo.ch
Switzerland and the EU have significantly contributed to the development of climate-resilient agriculture in Zimbabwe, particularly in the arid regions of Buhera and Gwanda. The €207 million Team Europe Initiative on Greener and Climate-Smart Agriculture aims to establish sustainable production and help communities overcome climate challenges. The program has already improved the lives of local farmers, such as Jesca Mutero, who now owns 45 goats and a three-room house. The initiative includes crossbreeding local goats with foreign breeds to tap into a growth market, and it aligns with the Zimbabwean government's efforts to promote sustainable agriculture and climate-proof farming practices. The government, with support from development partners, has made strides in food security through climate-smart agriculture.

The home-grown ingredients that could rescue Zimbabwe's tilapia farmers

06 Dec 2023  |  The Fish Site
Egerine Maifa, a farmer in Mutasa district, Zimbabwe, transitioned from sugar bean farming to tilapia fish farming in 2017. Initially successful, her venture faced challenges when the cost of fish feed soared due to economic changes in Zimbabwe, including the separation of US dollar and 'bond' bank balances and the abolishment of foreign currency for local transactions. The price of a 25kg bag of feed rose from US$18 to $350 Zimbabwe dollars (equivalent to US$23). To combat this, Maifa adopted alternative feeding methods using local ingredients like river tamarind leaves and sweet potato, which reduced costs without compromising fish quality. The charity Practical Action has supported local farmers with workshops on alternative feeds and is seeking local entrepreneurs to partner in local feed formulation to help farmers cope with rising feed prices.

How African markets are defining, expanding nature-based food systems

05 Oct 2023  |  Southern Eye
African indigenous markets are playing a crucial role in expanding nature-based food systems by increasing the demand and consumption of indigenous foods, preserving natural ecosystems, and providing economic value to local communities. These markets offer insights into the return on investment in natural resources, track the seasonality of food commodities, and serve as platforms for indigenous knowledge sharing. They also help in redistributing natural resource benefits and directing investment priorities, making them key institutions in protecting and promoting biodiversity and sustainable food systems.

IH Securities warns of ‘Laffer curve effect’

02 Oct 2023  |  Southern Eye
IH Securities warns that the recent tax reforms introduced by Zimbabwe's Treasury could lead to the 'Laffer curve effect,' potentially reducing tax revenue instead of increasing it. The new taxes, part of the ZWL$58.2 trillion 2024 national budget, include a wealth tax, a domestic minimum top-up tax, and various levies and fees. IH Securities highlights that these measures might drive more transactions into the shadow economy, reducing tax compliance and impacting corporate earnings. The Laffer curve theory, cited from Investopedia, suggests that higher tax rates do not always result in increased tax revenue, especially in a weakening economy.

Programs to combat deforestation are gaining momentum in Zimbabwe.

01 Apr 2023  |  tobaccoreporter.com
Zimbabwe is facing significant deforestation, with a substantial portion resulting from tobacco curing. To address this, the Forestry Commission of Zimbabwe (FCZ) and the Sustainable Afforestation Association (SAA), supported by tobacco merchants, have initiated reforestation programs. Farmers contribute to a reforestation fund managed by FCZ, while the SAA, established by tobacco buyers, funds tree planting efforts. Since 2014, the SAA has seen an increase in participating merchants and has planted around 20,000 hectares of trees. The FCZ reports that 330,000 hectares of forest are lost annually, with tobacco curing by smallholder farmers being a major contributor due to their reliance on wood instead of coal.

Zimbabwe Aims to Capture More Value from Tobacco

22 Nov 2021  |  tobaccoreporter.com
Shasha Tobacco, a Zimbabwean tobacco leaf merchant, is optimistic about the government's financing localization plan, which aims to provide local funding for tobacco cultivation. Augusta Ajento, the company's finance and administration executive, believes this initiative will not only generate employment but also support related industries such as packaging, fertilizer manufacturing, banking, and insurance. Ajento does not see the plan as a threat to contract farming but rather as a means to improve efficiency and reduce overpricing. He expects that the availability of local funds at lower costs will decrease the interest burden on farmers. Shasha Tobacco, which contracts 4,800 growers annually, plans to retain them by maintaining professional relationships and offering fair deals. Ajento also emphasizes the need for increased technical support and training for farmers to enhance productivity and leaf quality.

20 Apr 2020  |  www.thepoultrysite.com
