Recovering Lost Livelihoods: The case of smallholder plantation crops in Zimbabwe

Author:

the tea and coffee value chains to a halt. The SNV / World Vision project “Revitalising Smallholder Agriculture Project Zimbabwe” (RSAPZ) targeted 2000 smallholders in Honde Valley in eastern Zimbabwe to revive tea and coffee value chains.
