In recent years, Malawi has been exposed to recurrent emergencies caused by natural disasters in form of flooding and drought.
We prioritise WASH in our emergency response. We are a part of Malawi ACT forum, and we provide specialized capacity building within WASH. Together with ACT partners, we have recently extended our emergency response to refugees, initially those from Mozambique, but with a consideration of working closely with UNHCR on resettlement of old refugee caseloads from a number of other African countries. We work with the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DODMA) to improve our emergency response and early warning systems.
