legislation type Executive
Passed in 2018
This strategy aims to create a country free of chronic vulnerability and nutrition insecurity, where sustainable economic development creates opportunities for everyone, and where people are resilient to economic and environmental shocks that affect their lives and livelihoods.

The following "pillar impacts" are listed: 

1. Transformed agricultural sector into an engine for shared economic prosperity, food security and poverty reduction;
2. Scaled-up climate-resilient infrastructure, and enhanced climate-adaptation capacity of all stakeholders, through better access to climate information and early warning and response mechanisms that safeguard lives and livelihoods from shocks;
3. Sustained reduction in the number of chronically food insecure households by scaling up access to predictable social support services, complementary livelihood packages, nutrition services, and expanded access to national programmes;
4. Reduction in stunting of children <5 years of age through well-coordinated and high-impact multi- sectoral investments in nutrition-specific and nutrition-sensitive interventions;
5. Expanded public, private and community partnerships to safeguard Malawi’s natural resource endowments and ecosystems that contribute to social and economic prosperity;
6. Strengthened national and devolved government institutions, civil society, and private sector actors to adopt effective and accountable practices that prevent, mitigate, and respond to disasters, and promote long-term development;
7. Strengthened women’s empowerment through cross-cutting strategies and measurable outcomes.
