The National Long Term Vision 2030 (Vision 2030) is Zambia's first ever written long-term plan, expressing Zambians’ aspirations by the year 2030. The formulation process utilized both top-down and bottom-up approaches, where various stakeholders at both national and regional level were consulted.The Zambian people’s vision is to become “a prosperous middle income nation by 2030”. By 2030, Zambians, aspire to live in a strong and dynamic middle-income industrial nation that provides opportunities for improving the well being of all, embodying values of socioeconomic justice, underpinned by the principles of: (i) gender responsive sustainable development, (ii) democracy, (iii) respect for human rights, (iv) good traditional and family values, (v) positive attitude towards work, (vi) peaceful coexistence and, (vii) private-public partnerships.To achieve middle-income status, Zambia’s socio-economic development objectives are: (i) to attain and sustain annual real economic growth rates of between 6 and 10 percent, (i) to attain and maintain a moderate inflation rate of 5 percent, (iii) to decelerate the annual population growth rate from its 2005 rate of 2.9 percent to a rate of less than 1.0 percent over the next 25 years, (iv) to reduce national poverty head count to less than 20 percent of the population and, (v) to reduce income inequalities measured by a Gini coefficient of less than 40, (vi) to provide secure access to safe potable water sources and improved sanitation facilities to 100 percent of the population in both urban and rural areas.In order to eliminate hunger, food insecurity and malnutrition, the government plans a well nourished and health population by 2030. Strategies to be implemented are: (i) develop or advocate policies and programmes that will ensure food and nutrition security, food quality and safety at individual household, community and national level, (ii) prevent and control specific macro and micronutrient deficiencies and promote appropriate diets and lifestyles throughout all stages of human life, (iii) strengthen nutrition care practices for vulnerable groups, including young children, adolescents, women in the reproductive age, and HIV/AIDS infected, and those affected by non communicable diseases like diabetes, hypertension, coronary heart diseases, and cancer, (iv) develop and sustain human resource capacity in the nutrition sector to meet the growing nutrition demands, and (v) establish and maintain an efficient institutional arrangement and strong nutritional networks, (vi) attainment of 80 percent access to clean water supply to all by 2015 and 100 percent by 2030.In order to make agriculture, forestry and fisheries more productive and sustainable, the sector vision is an efficient, competitive, sustainable and export-led agriculture sector that assures food security and increased income by 2030. To achieve this goal, the government plans to: (i) increase agricultural productivity and land under cultivation by 2030, (ii) increase exports of agricultural and agro-processed products by 2030, (iii) preserve the agricultural resource base by 2030, (iv) increase land under cultivation to 900,000 hectares by 2030, (v) increasing land under irrigation to 400,000 hectares by 2030; (vi) increase agricultural machinery, tractors per 100 hectares to 2 by 2030, (vii) increase livestock population to 6,000,000 by 2030, (viii) increase fish population to 300,000mt by 2030, (vii) land being productively exploited for socio-economic development by 2030, and women men and the disabled have equal access to productive land for socio-economic development by 2030.Regarding the reduction of rural poverty, the government plans to sustain full employment by 2030. Strategies to be implemented are: (i) to maintain unemployment rate to below 10 per cent of the total labour force by 2030, (ii) the proportion of the labour force operating in an environment in which labour laws are respected and safeguarded to reach 90 per cent by 2030, (iii) to have an efficient and effective labor market information system in place by 2015, and (iv) to ensure that the minimum wage is commensurate with the prevailing living wage, (v) innovative and productive lifelong education and training for all by 2030. In addition, the government plans to include Gender equity and equality in the socio-economic development process by 2030 through, among others, the following strategies: (i) economically empower women through acquisition and ownership of titled land, (ii) reduce and ultimately eliminate gender imbalances and inadequacies associated with the provision of education, training and development, (iii) facilitate and provide economic support to institutions that offer credit facilities to women for land development.
