Despite making significant economic and structural reforms to sustain economic growth, Malawi remains one of the world's poorest countries . The COVID-19 pandemic has brought more challenges such as disruptions in agricultural input (fertilizer, seed, labor) and output supply chains and increased transaction and transportation costs due to restricted market access with potential increases in postharvest losses, food price changes in response to supply shifts, reduced farmers' incomes, and adverse effects on nutrition.
Leveraging the significant resources CGIAR has within target countries, researchers working through the CGIAR COVID-19 Hub are engaging with governments and other national partners in Malawi and elsewhere to respond to country demands for innovative and evidence-based solutions for emergency response and recovery.
