Expert implores government to fund agriculture centers

The University of Zambia has encouraged the government to invest in agriculture centers in each of the country’s ten provinces due to the rising popularity of agricultural pursuits.

To achieve sustainable growth, the nation must invest in agriculture, according to JACOB MALUNGO, dean of UNZA’s School of Humanities.

The Dean, who is also a Professor of Demography, claims that agriculture investment is crucial since the existing food supply cannot keep up with the rising demand for food.

According to Professor MALUNGO, Zambia’s population growth, which is 3.4% annually, does not correspond to the nation’s economic expansion.

He claims that the government now has more people to feed due to the quick increase.

Zambia has one of the greatest rates of population increase globally, he continues, and has to plan for efficient service delivery.
