Introduction to Chapter 7

Export citation

We begin our journey through Africa – as we did with Indonesia – with a revisit to an ACM site from the early 2000s. These authors, all participants in the earlier work, bring us up to date on what has happened in a country beset by chaos ever since, Zimbabwe. After briefly describing the original work with its significant successes, the authors outline the disasters that have plagued the country (land invasions, political upheaval, drastic currency devaluation, HIV/AIDS and COVID-19 epidemics, and more).
