EU Boosts Malawi's Irrigation Farming

Malawi's long time development partner European Union has injected €25 Million euros (about MK20billion) to propel irrigation farming in the country.

The idea is to see communities in the southern Africa nation are able to mitigate and adapt to climate change.

This follows adverse of climate change which for the past years has paralyzed the agriculture sector in one of the poorest nations in the world with an estimated human population of 15 million.

Currently Malawi is sailing through the worst acute food shortages with nearly 8 million people in need of urgent food assistance.

It is anticipated that the coming in of the multi billion Kwacha projects targeting six districts of Dedza, Nkhotakota, Nkhata-bay, Salima, Lilongwe and Chikhwawa will help to improve food security among benefit households and the country at large.
