Abstract: Some attempts of small-scale irrigation developments have been made along the shore of Lake Kariba in Zambia. In Chiyabi a 10 ha unit has been constructed by GRZ/FAO where 30 farm families are presently cultivating two crops per year. These farmers eventually have to run the scheme as a cooperative without too much Government involvement. The IRR of 25% is favourable. The scheme layout is replicable in many other areas along Lake Kariba. In the paper development aspects of Chiyabi are discussed and recommendations for a strategy for future developments are given.
