Investing in rural people in Malawi

IFAD began operations in Malawi in 1981 and has provided US$731.96 million in financing (including partner cofinancing) for 14 programmes and projects benefiting more than 2 million households.

The goal of the IFAD country strategic opportunities programme (COSOP) 2023-2030 is to contribute to rural poverty reduction through the empowered participation of poor rural women, men and youth in the sustainable transformation of agriculture.

Two complementary strategic objectives support the overall approach:

  • Increase agricultural productivity and climate resilience of small-scale farmers to improve food and nutrition security; and
  • Improve access to remunerative agricultural markets and services for rural women and youth.
