Malawi Population Policy Dialogues

The project aims to study the relationship and implication of population dynamics on critical areas of development in Malawi; poverty, transformational education and skills development, private sector development and job creation, environment and governance.
The project will have policy dialogues aimed at identifying ways of positioning populations issues into the critical areas of development highlighted.
These policy dialogues will bring together key stakeholders to deliberate on ways of positioning population issues to achieve sustainable and equitable development.

With support from UNFPA Malawi, AFIDEP will produce a series of position papers on the implication of Malawi’s population dynamics on critical areas of development: poverty, transformational education and skills development, private sector development and job creation, environment and governance. These position papers will set the tone for a series of policy dialogues that will bring together key stakeholders to deliberate on ways of positioning population issues to achieve sustainable and equitable development. These position papers are also expected to guide thinking in the development of a successor policy to vision 2020—Malawi’s long-term development plan which is due to elapse in 2020.

This project has the following objectives:

  1. To draft position papers on the relationship and implication of population dynamics on critical areas of development in Malawi; poverty, transformational education and skills development, private sector development and job creation, environment and governance.
  2. To facilitate policy dialogues aimed at identifying ways of positioning population issues into the critical areas of development highlighted above.

Outputs:

  1. Five-position papers published online
  2. Five policy dialogues convened around each position paper 

Outcomes: Finding/reports/ recommendations

  1. Influence thinking in the development of vision 2063 — the successor to vision 2020
