The Malawi SAKSS project is working with the Malawi Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MoAFS) to promote evidenced-based dialogue and decision making during the formulation and implementation of the country’s Agricultural Development Programme (ADP). Malawi SAKSS is engaged in three key activities: policy communication, policy research, and capacity strengthening. Examples of policy communication activities are a policy seminar series (at least one per quarter) drawing attendants from the MoAFS and stakeholder and process analysis through application net-mapping and other appropriate methods. Policy research is focused on food and nutritional security, rural-urban migration, agricultural risk, and climate change adaptation. Capacity strengthening includes mentoring of Malawian graduate students and a number of training workshops (Stata for regression analysis, CGE modeling, and SAM/IO modeling).
