Initial Steps in Implementation of the Malawi Land Laws: Implications for Commercial Agriculture
Golden Peacock, Lilongwe, Malawi, May 8, 2017
The “Initial Steps in Implementation of the Malawi Land Laws: Implications for Commercial Agriculture” symposium will provide a dialogue on the newly adopted Land Laws and what they entail for agriculture development in Malawi. The symposium will also provide information on the status of several New Alliance commitments that are related to land: 1) Identify land in phases, suitable for large scale commercial agriculture (10,000 ha/year from 2013) every year; 2) Enactment of the new Land Bill into law (which happened but now remains to be disseminated and implemented); 3) Introduction of agricultural zoning based on priority crops and growth.
The symposium is organized in consultation with all stakeholders in the Land and Agriculture sectors to ensure that the forum provides a platform for coordinated interventions in the land sector that promote development of a commercially viable agriculture sector.
This event is the continuation of the discussions of the 2016 symposium: “Complexities of Land Issues in Malawi and their Implications for Agricultural Commercialization.”
