ZIFLP supports Farmer Led Irrigation Schemes (FLIS), amidst a challenging 2023/24 farming season.

The 2023/24 agriculture farming season is under heavy threat as the country faces a crisis exacerbated by climate change and the El Nino weather phenomenon, which is threatening national and household food security with about 45% of planted staple crops being destroyed.
