African Development Bank Provides Malawi with $22 Million to Combat Climate Vulnerability

By Benoit-Ivan Wansi

The African Development Bank (AfDB) has announced funding of $22 million to strengthen Malawi’s climate resilience, particularly in the agricultural sector.

Hope is not yet lost for Malawi. While all the efforts made so far have not enabled the government in Lilongwe to strengthen the resilience of its 20 million inhabitants to the vagaries of the climate, the African Development Bank (AfDB) is releasing $22.7 million to turn things around.
