Project General Description

The present project concerns the Aid and Debt Management and Governance Grant. It aims to strengthen aid and debt management and governance in Malawi. The project should contribute to promote good governance, in the area of accountability, transparency and decentralization, which is one of the main elements required for better utilization and more efficient allocation of donors fund. This should be realized by assisting the Government in formulating a comprehensive national aid and debt policy, and strengthening the capacities of all its ministries and agencies involved in aid and debt management. The capacity building includes training, technical assistance, information technology and other logistics. The project’s main components and sub components are outlined below: i) Program Implementation Unit, ii) Integrated Aid and Debt Management System, iii) Capacity Building, and iv) Project Implementation and Monitoring Unit.

Project Objectives

The ultimate aim of the project is to reduce poverty, create employment opportunities, and achieve greater economic and social development through enhancing the co-ordination, allocation and utilization of external aid.
