Malawi National Resilience Strategy (NRS): Breaking the Cycle of Food Insecurity
The National Resilience Strategy (NRS) represents a pivotal shift in the way Malawi will address poverty reduction, food and nutrition security, and inclusive resilient growth for all its citizens.
For too many years the people of Malawi have cycled in and out of seasonal and multi-dimensional poverty. In 2016-17, over 40% of the population needed humanitarian assistance, which had devastating impacts on livelihoods, nutrition, and our progress to expand inclusive economic growth as outlined in the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy III. It is imperative that the GoM, its partners, and citizens reignite our ambitions and actions as we collectively deal with the increasing, more frequent, and rising severity of extreme weather events linked to climate change. Malawi’s commitment to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Agenda 2030, and Agenda 2063, remains steadfast.
