Denmark has committed USD18 million for the development of Zimbabwe’s agriculture and water sectors, according to an official of the Danish embassy in Harare.

“As part of my government support of the political and economic policies in Zimbabwe, we have released USD18 million to the revival of agriculture, the social services as well as water and sanitation in the country,” said Ketil Karlsen, Denmark’s charge d’affaires, according to the Herald, which is run by the Zimbabwean government.

The money comes on top of the funds that Denmark provided in support of Zimbabwe’s constitutional reforms, Karlsen added.
