Malawi Fact Sheet

Originally published on August 13, 2014.

Malawi's largely agrarian economy provides livelihoods for 85 percent of its population. But, poor infrastructure, limited arable land and destructive weather have contributed to food insecurity.

This fact sheet explores our work in Malawi since 1999, which has been focused on helping rural households improve their incomes from farming while enable better nutrition. Updated February 2016.
