Caritas Zambia strategic issues have been clustered around four main areas which also form Caritas Zambia programmes namely; Democracy and Governance, The Church and State, Economic and Social Accountability, and Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation. In addition, there is a fifth programme which provides support to all the other four programmes and is called Organisational Development.

Democracy and Governance Programme (DGP)

The aim of this programme is to have a Zambian society which upholds tenets of democracy (promotes participation, rule of law, and respect of human rights). The DGP areas of focus are:

  • Parliament: The focus is on promoting a parliament that enhances citizens’ engagement in its three functions of legislation, oversight and representation. Further, a mechanism to hold the MPs accountable and to assess their performance will be developed and implemented. 
  • Constitution Making Process: The focus is on advocating for policies and laws in the Constitution that protect and uphold the fundamental human rights and dignity of the human person. Further, the programme will work on the various subsidiary laws that will need to be changed following the enactment of a new constitution.
  • Electoral process: The focus is on the promotion of a credible electoral process that ensures free and fair participation of various players in the electoral cycle
  • Decentralization: The focus is on advocacy for the implementation of the National Decentralization Policy as well as civic education on the policy.
