At a Glance
Malawi faces a number of challenges that increase its vulnerability to a changing climate, including high population growth, dependence on rainfed agriculture, high rates of malnutrition and HIV/AIDS, and inadequate power supply. Extreme climate and weather events such as the increased frequency and intensity of drought and floods, along with higher temperatures, negatively impact agriculture production, fisheries, wildlife and forests, which provide food, income, fuel, and other environmental services to vulnerable populations.
