About Zimbabwe

Projected adult illiteracy rates for the year 2000 stand at 7.3% (males, 4.5%; females, 10.1%). A unitary system of education under the Ministry of Education has replaced the dual system of separate educational facilities for Africans and non-Africans formerly maintained by the Rhodesian government.

The University of Zimbabwe provides higher education on a multiracial basis. Other universities include the National University of Science and Technology and the Africa University. In 1996, there were 46,673 students in all higher-level institutions.

In 1998, Zimbabwe had 3.2 million hectares (7.9 million acres) of arable land, covering 8% of the country's total land area. Most of what is now central Zimbabwe was sparsely populated when Europeans first settled into the region, gradually transforming the bush into fertile farmland. About 4,500 whites own and operate farms that cover one-third of Zimbabwe's most productive farmland. In 2001, agriculture accounted for 18% of GDP and 41% of exports.
