Kulima investigating the development of Malawi’s National Resilience Strategy

Katharine Vincent, Diana Mataya and Dorothy Tembo-Nhlema are working with colleagues from the University of Leeds and Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources to investigate the development of Malawi's National Resilience Strategy. The UMFULA project is looking at how decisions are made in order to identify how climate information may be used in the development of climate-resilient plans. The National Resilience Strategy in Malawi is a high level initiative that aims to bring together disaster risk reduction, climate change adaptation and social protection to reduce the negative impacts of extreme events, such as droughts and floods. A forthcoming paper will assess the political economy of the strategy, and the ways in which it can bring together disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation.
