‘Sustainable land management key in addressing disasters’

Parliamentary Committee on Natural Resources and Climate Change says it is impressed by interventions which Malawi Watershed Services Improvement Project (MWASIP) is implementing in Zomba and Ntcheu districts, aimed at restoring land and environmental conservation.

Committee Chairperson, Werani Chilenga, said this after the committee toured the project sites.

Chilenga said: ” So far so good but we can do more, especially helping these smallholder farmers to have good prices of the honey they are producing.”

He said sustainable land management the project is undertaking has the potential of restoring land, which of late has been hit hard by natural disasters.

MWASIP Project Coordinator, Peter Kadewere, assured the Committee of the project’s commitment to addressing all issues raised by the Committee.

MWASIP is being implemented in seven districts, among them Zomba, Blantyre and Ntcheu, with financial assistance from the World Bank and Malawi Government.
