Infrastructure in Zambia

Infrastructure is the basic physical and organizational structure needed for the operation of a society or enterprise or the services and facilities necessary for an economy to function, a framework supporting an entire structure of development. The structures that support a society, such as roads, bridges, water supply, sewers, electrical grids, telecommunications, and so forth are the components of interrelated systems providing commodities and services essential to enable, sustain, or enhance societal living conditions. Infrastructure facilitates the production of goods and services, and also the distribution of finished products to markets, as well as basic social services such as schools and hospitals.
