Causes We Support

Human Rights
Clean Water
Deforestation, air and water pollution, and illegal wildlife poaching have all strained the environment.1 The growing mining industry is increasingly accused of being a major contributor to air and water pollution. Streams and groundwater near mines become polluted by toxic chemicals, negatively affecting water used for drinking and agriculture. 2 Over the past four decades, there has been a marked increase in floods and droughts. In recent years, low rainfall levels depleted Lake Kariba, the country’s largest water and power source. As a result, people have experienced intermittent blackouts and loss of electricity.3

Zambia's economy has experienced strong growth in recent years, with real GDP growth in 2005-12 more than 6% per year. Privatization of government-owned copper mines in the 1990s relieved the government from covering mammoth losses generated by the industry and greatly increased copper mining output and profitability to spur economic growth. Copper output has increased steadily since 2004, due to higher copper prices and foreign investment. In 2005, Zambia qualified for debt relief under the Highly Indebted Poor Country Initiative, consisting of approximately US$6 billion in debt relief. Poverty remains a significant problem in Zambia, despite a stronger economy. Zambia's ...See More dependency on copper makes it vulnerable to depressed commodity prices, but record high copper prices and a bumper maize crop in 2010 helped Zambia rebound quickly from the world economic slowdown that began in 2008. Zambia has made some strides to improve the ease of doing business. A high birth rate, relatively high HIV/AIDS burden, and market distorting agricultural policies have meant that Zambia''s economic growth has not dramatically decreased the stubbornly high poverty rate.
