Study on drivers of change in three chiefdoms of Southern Province in Zambia Commissioned by the Royal Norwegian Embassy in Lusaka
The Norwegian Embassy in Lusaka has decided to support a community development project in three chiefdoms of Southern Province targeting traditional leaders as local drivers of development. The justification for supporting this initiative to involve traditional leaders in development is what is seen as the failure of the conventional approaches to contribute to sustained development in the rural areas of Zambia. The purpose of this study commissioned by the Embassy is to do an analysis of actors and groups in the chiefdom, with the aim to identify and assess potential drivers of change. The analysis of potential drivers of change confirms the strong position of the traditional leaders in the communities.
