Infobwana gives information on development sector businesses and organisations in Zambia. These entities provide various kinds of local and international development support. They are involved in interventions related to disaster response, governance, human capital, infrastructure and universal human rights.

How well do the various institutions in a country prepare for, respond to and learn from the effects of major failures? Success in these areas will mean that the negative impact of disasters is minimised. Some organisations are set up to assist in a practical way when a natural disaster happens, establishing a programme with the government and aid agencies to provide fast relief. The disaster is managed through a process of effective preparedness and early response. Often resources are mobilised through a combined effort involving several international organisations.

The question of governance is often raised by rights and advocacy groups who endeavour to engage civil society in the dialogue. Issues of concern often relate to gender equality and universal human rights in general.

Many development organisations work to improve educational and healthcare services, while infrastructure development programmes are often bi-lateral or multi-lateral initiatives. These may cover the agricultural sector, capacity building of enterprises or disadvantaged communities, economic reform and/or environmental impact mitigation.
