New US $53 Million Agricultural Development Programme Launched in Malawi to Combat Food Insecurity

Malawi, a country highly vulnerable to climate shocks and widespread hunger, is taking a crucial step to improve food security for its citizens. The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and Government of Malawi launched a US$53 million agricultural development programme today that seeks to commercialise agriculture production and enhance the resilience of small-scale farming systems for improved income, food and nutrition security in the country.
