PROJECT DESCRIPTION

This project aims to achieve improved food security for 214,974 chronically food insecure households in 39 Traditional Authorities within 5 livelihood zones in Southern Malawi by 2014.

ACTIVITIES

Monetization proceeds and cash funding will support health and nutrition training and monitoring, agricultural and agro-enterprise activities, non-agricultural income generation activities, natural resource management and emergency preparedness.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Strategies for each SO will incorporate interventions that support WALA’s cross-cutting themes of HIV mitigation, gender equality, and environmental protection. As such themes are closely linked to food security, a holistic approach is required.
