Visit of Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC, to Zambia

Andris Piebalgs, Member of the EC in charge of Development, went to Zambia from 18 to 20 June, to sign a new agreement to support smallholder farmers and promote agricultural. Thanks to this partnership, signed with the UN’s Food and Agriculture organisation (FAO), local farmers will benefit from an average increase of 40% in household revenue. This new initiative received 11.1 million euro in EU funding.
Andris Piebalgs discussed future cooperation between the EU and Zambia on renewable energy, as well as a possible cooperation agreement which will promote access to sustainable energy in the country. As a member of the 'UN High Level Group on Sustainable Energy for All', Andris Piebalgs attended an energy seminar (Seminar on Energy future of Zambia: Sustainable Energy Sources and Hydro Power Potential), where he expressed the strong support the EU intends to provide to Zambia’s energy sector.
As part of the visit, the following new agreements were also signed: a project on Non-State Actors (NGOs), to provide capacity building support to NGOs in Zambia; and three contracts for the rehabilitation of the great East Road (one of the main roads in Zambia, and a link between Malawi and Mozambique) for a total amount of 118 million euro.
During his stay, Andris Piebalgs also visited the following ongoing EU-funded projects: a health centre in Kafue which will benefit from EU support, as part of the Millennium Development Goals (MDG) Initiative programme; a commercial farm in Mazabuka; and Conservation Agriculture project in Mazabuka financed by the EU and implemented by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).
