Project General Description

The present intervention concerns the Project Preparation Facility (PPF) of the Customary Land Reform and Sustainable Rural Livelihood Project. This preparation should help in preparing a technically sound, financially viable, environmentally safe and socially desirable the project. The proposed project is a product of Malawi’s Land Policy, which was approved by the Government in January 2002. By approving the Land Policy, the Government has taken a bold step that could assist in addressing the long neglected needs of the poor and facilitating long-term economic growth through support for improved land administration and enhanced smallholder agricultural productivity. The preparation should facilitate the extensive stakeholder consultations and participation that are required in the elaboration of all of the studies, identification, validation and prioritisation of stakeholder needs, as well as drafting of the preparation report.

Project Objectives

The objective of the PPF is to facilitate the preparation of the customary land reform and sustainable rural livelihood project. The objective of the project is to raise farm incomes by increasing agricultural productivity, thereby contributing to poverty reduction of beneficiary smallholder farmers (including women) in Chradzulu, Kasungu and Rhumpi.


The main beneficiaries of the PPF are the Malawi authorities and local communities.
