This report presents the results of the National Forest Landscape Restoration Assessment (NFLRA) for Malawi. The NFLRA process was launched in February 2016 by the Minister of Natural Resources, Energy and Mining in close collaboration with government departments in the Ministries of Agriculture, Water and Irrigation; Lands; Local Government; Finance; Gender and Social Services; and other concerned stakeholders. The national assessment was designed to identify needs and opportunities for the restoration of the productivity and ecological function of degraded and deforested landscapes in Malawi that will in turn help to achieve Malawi’s sustainable development goals related to food, water, and livelihood security and climate resilience.
