The revised Sixth National Development Plan and the 2013 MDG Report highlights that growing income inequality threatens to reverse Zambia’s recent socio-economic gains and hinders progress towards attaining the MDGs by 2015. During the period of economic expansion, Zambia’s Gini co-efficient, which measures income inequality, worsened from 0.60 in 2006 to 0.65 in 2010. This trend demonstrates that growth alone will not address the challenge of persistent income inequality in Zambia. The results of this project will ultimately contribute to the overall objectives outlined in the Industrialisation and Job creation strategy. In this regard, the growth sectors identified in this project are aligned to those targeted through the Industrialisation and Job creation strategy.
