COOPI has been present in Malawi since 1999, managing multi-sector interventions in agriculture, food security, disaster risk reduction and energy.
Agricultural development and improved food security are essential in order to support a country which relies on agriculture as its main source of income and which is also prone to flooding. To this purpose, we have distributed seeds, provided tools for irrigation as well as provided farmers with training on cultivation techniques.
The interventions carried out also aim to mitigate risks related to natural disasters thanks to the introduction of new technologies, that enable satellite mapping of hazard zones- i.e. the Geographic Information System, the creation and training of Civil Defence Committees for the management of initial response activities and the implementation of emergency plans.
Major advances have been made in the field of energy through the use of alternative energies, solar in particular, to provide electricity to schools and healthcare centres and to establish commercial enterprises, such as barber’s shops and small cinemas.
