USAID/Malawi has developed a Request for Information for the purpose of knowing: 1) ways to strengthen incentives and disincentives to counter illegal, and unsustainable firewood and charcoal production; and 2) which organizations, including the private sector, are promoting alternative, efficient energy technologies coupled with behavior change strategies to reduce demand for charcoal and firewood use for domestic and/or industrial energy needs. USAID/Malawi seeks information to help inform interventions aimed at Sustainable Management of Priority Forests and Bordering Watersheds to increase forest cover, promote land-based emissions reductions and support livelihoods.

Smallholder farmers cultivate 90% of the arable land in Malawi and face many challenges including declining soil fertility, erratic rainfall, land constraints, and poor institutional support. With limited access to credit, inputs, and price information, the typical farmer struggles to support a family of six on only one hectare of land. Also, Malnutrition particularly is a major problem causing stunting for 47% of children under the age of 5.

USAID’s Let Girls Learn AMAA (Give Girls a Chance to Learn) project in Malawi seeks to deliver a range of district specific activities to mitigate the barriers to girls’ enrollment and retention in school. The project will work in five priority districts including Balaka, Machinga, Phalombe, Mzimba and Chikwawa, targeting girls aged 10-19 in both upper primary and secondary schools. Led by Save the Children, AMAA will work with local and international NGOs as well as NORC, the Ministry of Education in Malawi, and plans to partner with USDA to mitigate the barriers preventing girls’ enrollment and retention in school.
