Zimbabwe is a land locked country located at the heart of Southern Africa, bordered by South Africa, Botswana, Zambia and Mozambique. It has a population of approximately 16 million people and land surface of about 386 000 square meters, almost same as Japan. The country is rich in mineral resources such as gold, platinum and chromite. Zimbabwe has an impressive adult literacy rate of 90% – one of the highest ratings in Africa. Although the country continues to suffer from a myriad of economic challenges that include liquidity, low production in manufacturing industries and crumbling infrastructure, the newly ushered political administration is working hard to reform and positively transform the economy.
To support Zimbabwe, JICA's cooperation is on 1) agriculture; 2) infrastructure development 3) health and 4) other technical cooperation (tourism, One Stop Border Post and Harare Map), 5) capacity development – Volunteer (JOCV: Japan Overseas Cooperation Agency) and Knowledge Co-creation Programs.
