JICA started its activity in Zimbabwe in 1980 by sending several study missions to Zimbabwe concurrent with the independence of the country, followed by accepting training participants in Japan and dispatching Japanese experts to Zimbabwe in 1981. The first Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers arrived in Zimbabwe in 1989 and JICA Zimbabwe Office was established in 1996.
To assist the efforts by the people and the Government of Zimbabwe for achieving sustainable development, JICA is extending its support in line with the priority areas of Japan's assistance policy below.
1 - Promotion of Economic Integration within the Southern African Region
2 - Effective Utilization of Resources
3 - Assistance for Human Security of People with Poverty
JICA is working closely with the counterparts, mainly partner government departments and agencies in Zimbabwe, by making best use of various types of supports, namely, Grand Aid, Technical Cooperation Project, Knowledge Co-creation Program (Training Program), Japan Overseas Cooperation Volunteers and others.
