Where We Work

Malawi

Since 1999,COOPI has implemented multi-sectoral interventions in Malawi, mainly in the disaster risk reduction, food security and energy sectors.

The main activities carried out in the country include intensive work with and for local authorities to improve their preparedness for and response to disastrous natural phenomena. The creation of multimedia platforms aimed at mapping, predicting and preventing natural disasters for institutions in charge of civil protection has been one of our main focus of intervention in the country for several years.

At the same time, COOPI has worked with farmers and cooperatives to improve and expand production systems aimed, ultimately, at improving food security conditions of the beneficiaries, since Malawi's main source of income is subsistence farming and the territory is subject to various types of natural threats, including floods and droughts.
