Smallholder Diversification and Income Growth in Zambia

Abstract [en]

This paper uses nationally representative panel data to analyse the relationship between income diversification and incomes for Zambian smallholder households.We show that shifting to a higher degree of diversification is generally associated with higher incomes. We find that diversification is driven by endowments and access to markets and finance. Education opens up opportunities for well-paid non-agricultural activities, while land shortage forces distress diversification into agricultural wage work.
