July 26, 2014

Commissioned by: German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) Country: Malawi Lead executing agency: Ministry of Economic Planning and Development (MEPD); Ministry of Finance (MoF) Overall term: 2004 to 2016 Project Status - Active Project Phase: Execution Context: With an average annual per-capita income of US$ 325, Malawi is among the world s poorest countries. Approximately 65% of the population lives below the poverty line. The UNDP Human Development Index (HDI) ranks Malawi in 171st place out of 187 listed countries. The Government is showing its willingness to make its policies pro-poor and to reform the public finance system. One of the most important challenges is to effectively implement the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy II (MGDS II) and to integrate it into the national budget. The major issues to be tackled here currently relate to the prioritisation of funding, planning and managing reforms, monitoring results, coordination among the most important government actors, and consultation with all parties concerned. Objective: The Malawi Growth and Development Strategy is being better implemented via the national budget. Approach: The project supports the Government in planning, coordinating and implementing the reform of public finances, in implementing and monitoring the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy and effectively linking it with the national budget. To ensure success, a network must be set up that involves the competent ministries, the Ministry of Finance (MoF) and the Ministry of Economic Planning and Development (MEPD), and integrates the development and budget planning processes.
