    AICD Country Report: Zambia’s Infrastructure

    A Continental Perspective

    This study is a product of the Africa Infrastructure Country Diagnostic (AICD), a project designed to expand the world’s knowledge of physical infrastructure in Africa.

It also offers a solid empirical foundation for prioritizing investments and designing policy reforms in Africa’s infrastructure sectors.  The focus of the AICD country reports is on benchmarking sector performance and quantifying the main financing and efficiency gaps at the country level. These reports are particularly relevant to national policy makers and development partners working on...
