Policies Survey notes:

Zambia is participating in the OER4OS project. This experience has allowed the country to develop most of its school-level materials in an electronic format and make them available as OER. Zambia identifies this initiative as responding to the challenge of supplying material to schools and other educational institutions.
The respondent to Policies Survey from Zambia noted in relation to Zambia's motivations for involvement in the OER movement that "We have a big challenge in the supply of material to our learning institutions and therefore open educational resources would be an answer."
