6 September 2016

The population of Malawi is youthful, with almost half (47 percent) aged 18 and below.This youthful population is Malawi’s greatest resource. If properly nurtured and supported, the youth will positively contribute to Malawi’s socio-economic development.

The Government of Malawi through the Ministry of Finance, Economic Planning and Development in collaboration with the United Nations Country Team (UNCT) under the leadership of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) commissioned the National Demographic Dividend Study in 2015. UNFPA provided financial and technical support for the study and commissioned the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) to provide technical leadership in conducting the study.
