MALAWI TO BENEFIT FROM LEG FUNDING

MALAWI is set to benefit from the increased climate change adaptation programme fund through the Least Developed Country Expert Group (LEG), a grouping under the United Nations charged to support  Least Developed Countries (LDCs).

This was disclosed during a side event in commemoration of LEG’s  20-year contributions. President Dr Lazarus Chakwera delivered a keynote address at the event.

During the ceremony, the organisation pledged to invest over K20 billion in aquaculture in Malawi and a few other countries for the next four years.

Dr Chakwera, speaking in his capacity as Chairperson of the 46 LDCs said the 20 years’ work of LEG has been a significant contribution to climate change adaptation among LDCs.

However, he said there is a need to engage the extra gear in mitigating the impacts of climate change.

Taking her turn, Chizuru Aoki, Lead Environmental Specialist and Fund Advisor for LDCs for the UN said Malawi is one of the countries to benefit more from the funding.
