Malawi Case Study: Social Protection Measures and Labour Markets

Nov 2, 2015

This case study responds to a recognized need to improve our understanding on how social and economic policies can be integrated to simultaneously improve social welfare, employment outcomes and inclusive growth. It describes and analyses the impact that pro-poor programmes and social protection (SP) measures have had on reducing poverty and mitigating the vulnerability of the poor in Malawi. Being a Least Developed Country (LDC) with a predominantly rural population engaged in agriculture, the paper pays special attention to the development of the agricultural sector though, for example, the provision of maize technology transfers.
