Together for a Just Zambia is a commitment the two agencies under the Joint Country Programme (JCP) comprising Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and Dan Church Aid (DCA) have made over the next 5 years as reflected in our 2020-2024 strategic framework. The strategy is a response to high poverty levels and inequalities as demonstrated by high unemployment levels, unequal access to and control of resources and increased Sexual and Gender Based Violence. This situation has been brought about mostly due to corruption, capital flight, lack of accountability and transparency in the use of national resources, non-implementation of laws and policies and negative effects of climate change. All these indicators of extreme underdevelopment are seen in a situation where Zambia is experiencing macro-economic developments which are not translated into micro economic developments to benefit citizens.) JCP’s agenda on CSO strengthening is to capacitate them to reclaim their civic space, mandate, and role to hold duty bearers accountable. JCP’s mission to promote economic justice and gender justice shall contribute to our vision of Together for a Just Zambia by tackling root causes of poverty through Rights-Based Approaches (RBA) and partner centered development to contribute to Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
The Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and Dan Church Aid (DCA) work together in Zambia within the framework of a Joint Country Programme (JCP). The merger of the two organisations took place in 2011 and NCA is the lead agency for the programme in Zambia. The JCP strategic framework is implemented in partnership with local church and faith based and other civil society organisations and networks. The JCP 2016-2019 Strategic framework came to an end. The Programme has been reviewed and evaluated with findings, lessons learnt, and recommendations documented and used to input into the design of the 2020-2024 strategic framework. Within the context of the new strategic framework, JCP has continued with the two strategic priority themes namely: Gender Justice and Economic Justice which is operationalised through three thematic programmes: (i) Climate Smart Economic Empowerment (EE), (ii) Gender Justice (GJ) free of Gender Based Violence (GBV) and (iii) Fighting Inequality formerly called Resource Governance (RG).
The overall goal of JCP for 2020-2024 is to contribute to creating an enabling environment that promotes Zambian citizens and especially poor men and women, to own and actively participate in shaping the national development agenda for their benefit. In that regard, the strategy seeks to contribute to a Zambia where all women, men, girls, and boys on equal terms are empowered to enjoy economic, political, social, environmental, and democratic rights, so that they are benefitting from a restored sustainable growth of the country.
JCP Zambia’s vision of Together for a Just Zambia is anchored on the Rights Based Approach (RBA) that promotes and safeguards citizens’ rights for their dignity. The overarching objective of JCP Zambia is fighting economic and gender inequalities. To achieve this objective, JCP shall focus its interventions on three pathways: Gender Justice free of GBV, Fighting Inequality and Climate Smart Economic Empowerment (CSEE). Therefore, if core and resource partners’ institutional capacities are strengthened; women and girls live empowered lives free from GBV; if there is fair and equitable finance and redistribution of resources and people are enabled to lift themselves out of poverty while building communities’ resilience, then JCP and partners shall contribute to a greater impact of a just Zambia in which Rights Holders (RHs) (i.e. women, men, girls and boys) on equal terms, regardless of race, gender or creed, enjoy civil, political, economic, social, environmental rights. If JCP and partners advocate for strong institutions, concrete legal and policy frameworks then they will be guarantee RHs economic justice and gender justice. The assumption is that Government is tolerant and receptive to creating an enabling environment in which policies, legal frameworks, standards and systems and procedures foster constructive civic engagements and respect of rule of law. JCP would like to continue service provision to RHs even in the context of COVID 19.
For the 2020-2024 strategic period, JCP shall work in four provinces namely Eastern, Southern, for more information follow this link.
