Mwanza Rural Development Project fits in the Government’s National Rural Development Programme and is among the priority projects listed in the Bank’s country prospect and economic programme paper for Malawi. The project aims at increasing agricultural production by encouraging farmers, through extension and training, to adopt research recommandations and providing supportive infrastructure. It will raise long term productivity of land by providing for measures to reduce soil erosion, land degradation and to manage land resources. The project is to be implemented over a 5-year period; it will provide extension and credit packages that will help the smallholders to increase agricultural production. Incomes and welfare of the rural people in Mwanza district will be improved as a result of successful project implementation. It is expected that some 13,575-farm families will actively participate in the project.
The objectives are to increase the incomes and welfare of the smallholders in Mwanza District; protect land resources and maintain and raise long-term productivity of the land to enhance increased production for export and import substitution.
