GOAL Malawi: Experiences and Lessons Learned in Food Security and Agriculture DRR
In parts of Malawi, including Nsanje district in the south, 80-100% crop failure is not uncommon due to cli-mate shocks experienced at critical crop growth stages. As a result, farmers not only lose their main source of food but also their main source of income. In response GOAL Malawi, with partners such as FAO, government departments and other NGOs, have for the past year been implementing the ECHO funded Disaster Risk Reduction Food Security pilot project.
