Malawi is recurrenlty exposed to environmental disasters such as floods and droughts. A 2014 climate profiling exercise by FAO indicated an increase in prolonged dry spells, floods, heavy storms and hailstorms. The same study revealed the magnitude of environmental degradation in the country, due mainly to encroachment on river banks and heavy deforestation: Malawi is witnessing the recession of Lake Chilwa and silting of streams and rivers. Climate change is exacerbating an already alarming situation.
The objective of this programme is to empower Malawi's education sector and its capacity to satisfy the economy’s need for educated youth through expansion and improvement of equitable and gender-balanced secondary education.
