Investing in communities: The benefits and costs of building resilience for food security in Malawi

Source(s):  Tearfund

This publication reports on a community-based cost benefit analysis of a disaster risk reduction (DRR) and food security programme in a Malawian agricultural community. The aim of this study is to assess programme activities for their cost-effectiveness and to gather evidence to help inform programming decisions taken by Tearfund, their partners and other NGOs. A second key aim is to inform policy-relevant recommendations to help convince governments, donors and UN agencies to act in a timely way and with appropriate interventions to address food insecurity, given the growing threat from drought and other hazards.

A field research was done in collaboration with the Church of Central Africa Presbyterian (CCAP), Synod of Livingstonia, a development organisation working in Malawi which is currently finishing a major DRR programme that is the focus of this study.
