This research note was commissioned through the DFID PEAKS Helpdesk facility. Its main objective is to place Zambia's mining sector fiscal regime in an international context by answering the following question: How does the tax regime for mining compare internationally, in terms of absolute measures of key tax rates and subjective perceptions among mining investors?

The research note is structured as follows:
1. Country context and mining sector developments
2. Zambia's mining fiscal regime in international context
