This policy brief combines findings from a recent independent report based on microeconometric and computable general equilibrium analysis. The study aims at assessing both direct and indirect economic impacts of soil loss at aggregate level providing effects on GDP, Poverty, terms of trade and sectoral production. Moreover, the mitigation effects on soil loss guaranteed by antierosion practices are estimated. PDF URL 


This policy brief is based on a recent technical report on the microeconomic and macroeconomic impact of nutrient and soil loss in Malawi. Econometric estimates were used to evaluate the impacts, differentiated by segments of the national population and geographical areas. In the same manner, the demonstration of mitigation effects by specific agricultural practices offers valuable information for the design of policy recommendations aimed at maximizing the farmers’ profit when facing increasing phenomena of land degradation.
