Title

Vulnerability and social protection in Malawi

Author

Devereux, Stephen

Description

Most livelihoods in Malawi depend on agriculture, but agricultural vulnerability is high due to a variety of factors. Economic vulnerability and the impact of HIV/AIDS is also high. This paper highlights policy priorities and suggests that social protection and livelihood promotion measures are central to addressing vulnerability in Malawi. This report concludes with a review of ongoing and discontinued social protection mechanisms in Malawi.
