Arising from the recommendations of the last implementation mission, APPSA Zambia undertook the revision of the procurement plan to prioritize the works and laboratory equipment in line with the available resource envelope. In the plan for the remaining period of the year, Mount Makulu and Kabwe Research Stations were prioritized for laboratory equipment being procured through UNOPS and Mount Makulu, Kabwe and Golden Valley Research Stations were prioritized for irrigation infrastructure.
