The twin objectives of the NAPAS: Malawi project are to improve the agriculture investment climate in Malawi and to enable increased commercialization of Malawi’s agricultural sector.
In order to enable substantial progress to be made towards these objectives, the project has three technical components:
- Provide technical support for policy formulation;
- Engage in communication activities to inform debate on agriculture and food security policy issues, and
- Address gaps in analytical expertise constraining agricultural policy reform
