2. Development of Beira Corridor
The Beira Corridor is one of Southern Africa’s main transport routes. It is a road and rail network linking large parts of Zambia, Malawi, Zimbabwe and Mozambique to the port of Beira on the Indian Ocean. Farmland along the corridor has proven agricultural potential with micro climates suitable for a variety of crops for domestic consumption and export. There are good water resources along the corridor, although a lack of infrastructure means that most agricultural production is rain-fed. Of the over 10 million hectares of arable land available in the Beira Corridor less than 3% is presently commercially exploited.
