This CP has been modified (see below) BR3
COUNTRY PROGRAMME ZAMBIA 200157 (2011–2015):
The Government of the Republic of Zambia has adopted the Sixth National Development Plan to combat malnutrition, promote stainable agriculture and provide essential social protection. WFP supports this through its food assistance programme, procuring most of the food locally. 
Country programme 200157 aims to support social protection for vulnerable households, including assistance for the Government’s national social-protection strategy and Home-Grown School Feeding Programme. Country programme 200157 will focus on:

- improving human capital through food-based safety nets, using in-kind food and  vouchers and including school feeding and support for vulnerable groups; 

- disaster risk management and response by increasing the Government’s capacity to reduce vulnerability to climate shocks, disasters and environmental degradation; and

- expanding market opportunities for small farmers by leveraging local food procurement for social protection programmes.
