Malawi: Christian charity to tackle climate change in Malawi with new £3.2m programme - By Tola Mbakwe

A Scottish Christian charity will respond to the effects of global warming in Malawi through a new £3.2 million programme.
The three-year Climate Challenge Programme Malawi (CCPM) focuses on delivering long-term change and improving people’s access to food, water and energy.
The programme will be delivered by Scottish Catholic International Aid Fund (SCIAF) and will work with local people to identify the climate challenges they face, with a particular focus on helping the most vulnerable, including women and girls, and promoting human rights.


“Increasingly erratic weather makes it incredibly hard for small scale farmers to know when to plant their seeds, while more frequent and severe floods, drought and storms can wipe out their crops overnight, leaving them hungry and forced to leave their homes.”
He added that the programme will help vulnerable communities in southern Malawi cope with the climate challenges they face by increasing the food, water and clean energy they have.
