The PEI supported Malawi State of Environment Report is catalyzing further work on P-E linkages in Malawi and Africa
The PEI supported Malawi State of Environment Report (MSOER) published by the Ministry of Natural Resources, Energy and Environment in 2010 is now catalyzing further work on P-E linkages in Malawi and Africa. The information in the MSOER is being used by the UNFPA and the Leadership for Environment and Development (LEAD) Fellowship Programme to train fellow associates in both French and English speaking countries in Africa on the poverty, environment and development nexus Further, the World Bank is currently supporting the government of Malawi to develop a climate change atlas by using the information from the MSOER. The Atlas will cover a wide range of topics including a historical climate perspective, climate change projections, climate vulnerability, adaptation and mitigation as well as natural resources management issues. Catalyzing change is at the heart of the PEI approach to promote mainstreaming of P-E linkages into national development plans as well as the global development agenda. Moving into the next phase of the PEI 2013-2017 Malawi will continue to initiate studies and reports to influence policy makers and catalyze change among development partners with a particular focus on sectors, budgets and poverty.
