Key Findings

  • Financing systems polices are crucial in Malawi’s development agenda which have serious implications on the accomplishment or failure to achieve policy goals.
  • Though finance constitute an important component of food systems, finance policies in Malawi are less sensitive to food systems policies
    compared to the high level sensitiveness of food systems polices to financing systems and funding mechanisms.
  • While most policies in Malawi identified stakeholders and roles, very few indicated the funding mechanisms to achieve policy targets,
    incorporated a budget plan, share of funds to be provided by stakeholders nor identified the investment gap.
  • The potentials of MSPs in financing food systems to achieve important outcomes such as FNS are yet to be fully tapped in Malawi.
