This paper explains why national policy interventions that catalyze and sustain high levels of agricultural productivity in Malawi are urgently needed. The paper also highlights the policy interventions that Malawi could adopt in order to achieve economic development. Finally, the paper addresses the more difficult question of how the necessary transformation may be brought about. It makes the case for assembling a “coalition of the willing” to champion this change and emphasizes the decisive role of the State in determining whether and how this coalition can succeed.
