Fuel Subsidies in Zambia

Dr. Neil McCulloch (TPP Director) and Mashekwa Maboshe (ZIPAR) undertook this assignment with the primary objective of outlining a set of alternative price adjustment mechanisms and showing how they can be used to reduce subsidies in a way that minimises harm to citizens. It also summarised thinking about best practice approaches to subsidy reform, including examples from other countries and discussed their relevance to the Zambian context.
