A summarized four-page version of key research findings from the country profile on Malawi's national adaptation planning and NAP process. It analyzes the country context, climate change impacts, policies and processes, the institutional setup, development plans and priorities, coordination mechanisms, M&E, climate finance, and other key aspects related to adaptation planning and action. In addition, the profile identifies eight clusters of entry points for mainstreaming adaptation into other national and international processes, presenting an opportunity to support an inclusive and participatory NAP process that aligns with economic priorities and risks for adaptation actions, avoids duplication of efforts, and streamlines climate finance to integrate climate and development planning into a multi-stakeholder driven process.

This knowledge product was developed by Southern Voices on Adaptation in partnership with Civil Society Network on Climate Change (CISONECC) as the national implementing partner and SLYCAN Trust as the technical partner. It has been developed as part of the activities of CARE Denmark’s CLAR programme with the financial support of the Danish International Development Agency (DANIDA) and the Austrian Development Agency (ADA).
