Caritas Zambia is one of the seven departments of the Catholic Secretariat under the Zambia Episcopal Conference (ZEC). Its core mandate is to animate the work of the two Episcopal Commissions of Justice and Peace and Development. This is unlike what is obtaining in many Episcopal Conferences where the Commission for Justice and Peace is animated separate from the Commission for Development. In the Zambian Church, an integral approach has been taken with respect to the work of Development and Justice and Peace.

Until 2001, the Commission for Justice and Peace and the Commission for Development operated were being animated from two separate Catholic Secretariat Departments of Justice and Peace and Development respectively. The restructuring of the Zambia Catholic Secretariat in the years 2000 and 2001 recommended more synergies and cooperation in the work of the Commissions. The Justice and Peace and Development Departments were thus restructured to have a more integrated animation of their Commissions and to promote development more integrally. A semi autonomous body, the Catholic Center for Justice Development and Peace (CCJDP) was created to be an embodiment of the two Commissions. In 2007, CCJDP was renamed Caritas Zambia by the Zambia Episcopal Conference but still responsible for the work of the Commission for Development and the Commission for Justice and Peace
