The Zimbabwe Economic Policy Analysis and Research Unit (ZEPARU) is an autonomous economic policy analysis and research think tank established in the year 2003 by a Deed of Trust.
ZEPARU’s primary mission is to conduct needs based and contextually relevant applied economic policy analysis, research and capacity building activities to promote a culture of evidence based policy making and implementation processes in Zimbabwe, and to provide information to the investing public in Zimbabwe.
Zimbabwe is richly endowed with natural resources which include renewables (land; forest,water; wildlife; sunshine) and non-renewables (oil; gas; minerals) among others. The exploitation of these natural resources present immense opportunities to sustain high levels of income based resource rents.
