The Ministry of National Development Planning has released Volume II of the Seventh National Development Plan (7NDP).

The released document will guide the implementation of projects and programmes contained in the 7NDP.

According to a press statement made available to ZANIS by Minister of Financial Development Planning Alexander Chiteme, he explained that Volume II will serve as government’s prioritization framework and principle guide for the implementation of the 7NDP.

Mr. Chiteme said to achieve its objectives, Volume II outlines costed projects and programmes earmarked for implementation during the plan period.

He said it also defines outputs and indicators that will be used in monitoring and evaluating the implementation process.

Mr. Chiteme revealed that the development of the implementation plan is guided by a multi-sectorial reference group comprising key stakeholders which included representatives from public sector, private sector, trade unions, academia, civil society organisations and others.

He stated that to ensure that all key stakeholders are adequately represented, the formulation process utilized the existing structures that have been put in place for purposes of coordinating the implementation of the 7NDP.

Mr. Chiteme explained that the approach is also instrumental in promoting ownership and making key stakeholders understand and appreciate the theory of change on which the plan is premised.

He added that with the release of Volume II of the 7NDP, the 2019-2021 medium term expenditure framework will be more aligned to the 7NDP as the document will fully inform the budget development process.

Mr. Chiteme challenged all stakeholders to actively participate in implementing the plan and create a better Zambia.

  1. I write a comment each time I especially enjoy a post on a site or if I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It’s caused by the sincerness communicated in the post I browsed. And on this post. I was moved enough to drop a thought 🙂 I actually do have some questions for you if it’s okay. Could it be just me or does it look like like a few of the remarks come across as if they are coming from brain dead visitors? 😛 And, if you are posting at additional places, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you list all of all your shared sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
