  • Agriculture Assessment Malawi Handover July 17

    The full handover and details can be found here: https://projecteverest.crowdicity.com/post/403685 The Malawi Agriculture Assessment Team focused on gaining a deeper understanding of the issues faced by smallholder farmers in Malawi. This was achieved by conducting the Empathise, Define and Ideation phases of the Design Thinking process. The key issues found revolved around most farmers only having one harvest per year due to lack of irrigation. This poses a threat to both food and income security as not enough produce is yielded during the dry season to provide sustenance to families, nor is their income consistent year-round. Mono-cropping and a lack of crop rotation also means the depletion of essential nutrients from the soil, resulting in a widespread dependence on fertilizer to ma...

Mono-cropping and a lack of crop rotation also means the depletion of essential nutrients from the soil, resulting in a widespread dependence on fertilizer to maintain soil health. Issues surrounding pests were also found to be widespread and demonstrates the inability of farmers to respond and adapt to unforeseen risks such as sudden pest infestation. Current methods of managing pests, such as the excessive bulk-buying and usage of pesticides is proving ineffective and unsustainable, while also raising input costs for the farmers. The team’s ideate stage led to the securing of two, one acre plots of land to conduct the Experimental Farm concept which serves to mitigate the above issues. The team has formed crucial partnerships with the Blantyre District Agriculture Development Cabinet and has signed a MOU with Linda Mphande, the director. The Blantyre District Commissioner Bennet Nksala has also shown strong interest in the project, and has expressed interest in working with Project Everest once the company is registered in Malawi. It must be noted that this Agriculture Assessment was focused on surveying a cross section of the urban rural villages in the Nancholi area. Therefore, this has by no means uncovered the full extent of agricultural issues in Malawi. Surveying and analyses of other communities may yield different insights and implications.

Visit http://www.ewb.ca/water to learn more. We know that water is crucial to good health. In Malawi, EWB is contributing to the creation of long-term access to clean water. Although Malawi has many wells, as many as 35% are broken. In 2010, 30 EWB volunteers will improve the sustainability of Malawis wells, contributing to our overall goal of having 90% of water points working within five years. Accès à leau propre Nous savons que leau est essentielle à une bonne santé. Au Malawi, ISF contribue à létablissement dun accès à long terme à leau propre. Bien que le Malawi compte beaucoup de puits, pas moins de 35 % sont hors service. En 2010, une trentaine de bénévoles ISF amélioreront la viabilité des puits du Malawi, contribuant ainsi à latteinte de notre objectif qui consiste à sassurer que 90 % des points deau seront utilisables dici cinq ans.
