Abstract: SNV Zambia’s Jatropha value chain is still in it’s infancy but, already, results are being achieved. In the future, more Zambian’s will be empowered through improved access to rural energy and business opportunities based on Jatropha production. More local entrepreneurs will emerge to serve the rural economy. Business linkages will undoubtedly improve as the Jatropha value chain matures and SNV Zambia will have many more success stories to share. This report discusses outcomes and lessons learned.
