"At one point, a loaf of bread was Z$550 trillion."
1999 - 2009

Experienced a sharp drop in food production and in all other sectors.

The banking sector collapsed Farmers unable to obtain loans for capital development.

Food output capacity fell 45%, manufacturing output 29% in 2005,

Unemployment rose to 80%

Evaluation Matrix
Analysis of Scores
Feasibility of Project 13/15
Effectiveness of Measure 13/15
Theoretical Connectedness 14/15
Maintainability & Supportability 12/15
High Impact On Development

As All 4 Project Stages Score 12 and higher
Since the project was found to have a "High Impact" on development it is expected to have a positive impact on value creation and economic development.

This boost in activity and transactions will in turn create a self-perpetuating market that will further develop with inter-village sustainable supply chains

Range of Impact on Development
According to Vachon and Mao (2008)
Recommendations For Future Research
A more effective framework for analysis that is repeatable.

A measurement tool that is more precise, and more inclusive.

An evaluation system that accounts for a wider range of social, economic, environmental issues.
Framework for assessing sustainability level of a development project in its preliminary stage.

Synthesis of literature: Sustainable Development and Value Creation.

An alternate form of analyzing development projects.
