Mchinji seeks to improve Climate Smart Programme

Mchinji District’s Director of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Hastings Yotamu, has called for solutions to challenges encountered during the previous cycle of implementing the Climate Smart Enhanced Public Works Programme (CSEPWP).

He made the call during a review meeting that brought together members of the Mchinji District Environment Sub Committee and Designated Desk Officers (DDOs) from 20 catchment areas in the district.

“Our team is capable of achieving great things for Mchinji, but it is imperative that we adhere to norms and standards under the programme,” he said.

Some of the issues identified included failure of the district to meet the allocated targets for participant enrollment and there were also calls to maintain high-quality assets within the programme.

Thandi Kamanga, Guillime Catchment DDO, described the meeting as an enlightening experience that will greatly contribute to the success of the next cycle.

“This gathering served as an eye-opener, as we are reviewing we will point out all the shortfalls so that the implementation of the next cycle should go on smoothly,” she said.

CSEPWP, which is being implemented by the Malawi Government and funded by the World Bank and the Multi-Donor Trust Fund, is an important component of the Social Support for Resilient Livelihood Programme.
