The paper provides information on the principal theories of policymaking, the historical evolution of the Zambian legislature; explains the meaning of capacity for policymaking; discusses factors that have affected the performance of the legislature; and provides recommendations to address some of the observed barriers to the development and strengthening of capacity of Zambia's legislature.
