The Malawi Parliament Enhancement Project combines interventions that engage and shape the power relations, incentives, and influences within and outside parliament, to address the Parliament’s current underperformance. The project seeks to inspire supportive political behaviour and reforms, and strengthen capacity that enables performance improvement and effective delivery of Parliamentary functions. The project is anchored within the Parliamentary Service Commission (PSC) to enable parliament to own, inform and steer its implementation and ensure sustainability of the interventions. The project is addressing both the political and technical bottlenecks that limit the capacity of parliament to effectively fulfil its mandate. The project team, comprising diverse local and international experts in governance and evidence-informed transformational change, works closely with all leaders across the political spectrum to galvanise sustainable action to decisively improve the performance of the parliament.
To stimulate political behaviour, reforms, and capacity that enable performance improvement and effective delivery of Parliamentary functions in Malawi.
