GWERU— The
Zimbabwe Prisons and Correctional Services (ZPCS)  last week 
commissioned  the  farm production policy  as efforts 
to enhance  productivity within
the prisons  farms.

The
blueprint document was made possible by the correctional institution in
partnership with the Voluntary Services Oversees (VSO).

Speaking
at the official launch at WhaWha Prison, ZPCS Deputy Commissioner General,
Evidence Gaka  said it was  important for the  society to 
appreciate and realise that many changes 
were taking place  in the  socio-economic  environment warranting the  revision of 
production policies.

Gaka
said that policies were supposed to be in a position to address the
contemporary situations and feed into the broader policy goals.

“We
may all want to appreciate and realise that many changes are  taking place in the  socio-economic  environment 
warranting  both the revision and
formulation of production polices that will address  issues concerning crop and livestock
production as well as the  marketing
trends.

“In
addressing such issues, detailed polices should 
guide  future  processes 
thus informing  policymakers  and the 
implementers  in the programmes
and projects that are required to meet organisational objectives.

“ZPCS,
in coming up with a strategic plan, aimed at providing a framework which gives
innovative and environmentally sustainable farming practices that are resilient
and responsive to climatic changes,” said Gaka.

Gaka
said that the policy framework was crafted to guide the ZPCS in coming up with
a strategic production plan and improve the safety, security and health of
prisoners.

“The
other reason is focused on imparting environmentally sustainable and
entrepreneurial farming skills and knowledge that are inclusive and gender
sensitive to inmates for their community re-entry and successful reintegration,”
said Gaka.
