Transcript

  • 1. Public-Private-Partnerships: Key to accelerated FARM BLOCK DEVELOPMENT IN ZAMBIA Presented by David Subakanya February 2010
  • 2. Farm Block Development (FBD) in Zambia
    • Current policy
      • The main thrusts of the National Agricultural Policy (NAP) are:
        • Liberalization
        • Commercialization
        • Promotion of Public-Private Partnerships
        • Provision of effective agricultural services that will ensure sustainable agricultural growth.
        • Source: National Agricultural Policy (Ministry of Agriculture & Cooperatives)
  • 3. Derived Programmes from NAP
    • Commercialization of Agricultural Lands
      • Farm Block Development: Government is opening up viable agricultural lands into Farm Blocks.
      • Government is providing basic infrastructure such as:
        • Roads and Bridges
        • Dams, canals and weirs
        • Electrification
  • 4. Progress on FBD in Zambia The Government has earmarked to develop a Farm block in each Province of Zambia.
    • Farm Block Province District Size (Ha)
    • 1 Nasanga Central Serenje 155 000
    • 2 Kalumwange Western Kaoma 100 000
    • 3 Luena Luapula Kawambwa 100 000
    • 4 Manshya Northern Mpika 147 000
    • 5 Mikelenge/Luma North-Western Solwezi 100 000
    • 6 Luswishi Copper-Belt Lufwanyama 100 000
    • 7 Chongwe Lusaka Chongwe 45 000
    • 8 Simango Southern Kazungula 100 000
    • Zumwanda Eastern Lundazi 100 000
    • Source: Ministry of Agriculture & Cooperatives
  • 5. Cont… Progress on FBD in Zambia
    • The measure of progress in FBD has been very slow from Private Sector view point.
        • Assessment of all the earmarked Farm Blocks in 2009, only Nansanga Farm Block had recorded some marginal progress in terms of basic infrastructure development.
        • What could be the hurdles?
  • 6. Hurdles in the implementation of FBD in Zambia
    • The apparent slow progress on FBD could be attributed to:
      • Absence of Completion Time frame for each Farm Block
      • Absence of an implementation strategy (stimulus package)
      • Absence of Private Sector participation
      • Absence of Public-Privative-Partnership
  • 7. Absence of Completion Time Frame
    • The FBD Programme Lacks:
      • Overall implementation Schedule
      • Bench marks/mile stones in the implementation process
      • Inbuilt feedback mechanism in the implementation process
  • 8. Absence of implementation Strategy
    • The FBD Programme:
      • Is solely managed/implemented by Government departments. This in itself is limiting in terms of
        • Skill and innovation
        • Implementation speed
        • “Stimulus Package” in the selection of agricultural Lands.
        • Marketing
        • Targeting
  • 9. Absence of Private Sector Participation
    • The FBD Programme Lacks:
      • Private Sector participation at
        • Policy level
        • Management level
        • Implementation level
  • 10. Absence of Public-Private Partnership
    • The FBD Programme lacks Public-Private Partnerships (PPP).
    • Although the Government acknowledges the promotion of PPP, this is one Programme where PPP could be adopted.
  • 11. Public-Private-Partnership
    • Definition: Public-Private-Partnership (PPP) describes a Government Service or Private Venture which is funded and operated through a partnership of Government and one or more Private Sector Companies.
    • e.g. Contract between Public Sector authority and a Private party to provide a public service
    • Definition Source: Wikipedia.org
  • 12. Illustration of PPP
    • By definition: The Farm Block Development Programme (Government Service) which is funded would be operated through a partnership between Ministry of Agriculture & Cooperatives (Government) and one or more Land developers (Private Sector) Companies, to develop e.g. Luena Farm Block (a public service)
  • 13. Why Private Sector participation thru PPP?
    • Business and Management expertise
      • skilled in running business activities
      • Service delivery
      • Manages complex investment
    • New and Innovative approach
      • Incentive to innovate and try-out new ideas
      • Better value service
      • Quality standard
    • Focus on customer requirement
      • Enhanced service delivery
      • Adapt to changing trends
  • 14. Benefits of PPP approach to FBD Programme
    • Government would tap into the discipline, incentive, skills which the Private sector has developed thru its everyday business
    • Would enables Government to deliver its object better and more focused
    • Releases the potential and innovativeness of the people
    • Share in the Risk
  • 15. End of the Presentation “Twende babili, temwenso” and again “ chinchi…wababili”… Thank you for your Time
