Malawi Developing and funding social protection systems
An expert assessment showed that the programme has reduced poverty in eligible households: families eligible for this assistance eat more regularly, their children attend school for longer and there are fewer early pregnancies. The number of households that own land or livestock has also increased, and the overall economic situation of the families receiving assistance has improved.
Germany’s involvement in strengthening social protection in Malawi takes a long-term approach. For example, the BMZ is also supporting the Malawian government in drawing up a social register, which will enable eligible households to be identified more quickly and effectively.
