The Jesuit Centre for Theological Reflection (JCTR) is a church-affiliated civil society organization that conducts evidence-based advocacy on political, social, and economic issues. Based in Lusaka, the JCTR was founded in 1988 and works through four main programs: economic equity and development, social conditions, faith and justice, and outreach. As part of the Partnership Initiative, the JCTR will monitor the Zambian Development Agency (ZDA), specifically focusing on the agency’s incentives programs created to support the Zambian government’s broader employment and growth strategies. As part of this effort, the JCTR will provide information on the role of the ZDA in creating jobs and its budget implications and engage with the relevant government agencies to strengthen the role of civil society in monitoring the ZDA’s budget and decision-making processes.
