Donors pledge $50 million towards Malawi’s agriculture sector

Malawi’s development partners have pledged to support the country’s Soil Management Action Plan and other agricultural endeavours with $50 million.

This came as President Dr Lazarus Chakwera held a meeting with the USAID, AGRA and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), among others in Nairobi, Kenya on the sidelines of the Africa Fertilizer and Soil Management Summit.

The Malawi leader had invited the partners to support Malawi’s soil management and restoration agenda to enhance food and nutrition security.

In response, AGRA committed $5 million while IFAD pledged $45 million towards agricultural initiatives which can potentially employ 250 thousand youths.

Agriculture Minister, Sam Kawale, described this as a ‘vote of confidence’ in Dr Chakwera’s development agenda.
