The MwAPATA Institute’s policy advocacy component aims at strengthening policy coordination and outreach. MwAPATA is developing a robust stakeholder engagement structure to promote partnership for development, adoption, implementation, and monitoring of policy and governance reforms aimed at transforming Malawi’s agri-food systems. Our goal is to enhance coordination of policy activities to help avoid duplication of effort and promote synergy. The Institute participates in coordinating policy dialogue among stakeholders on reforms to provide a platform for communicating with key Ministries, including those responsible for agriculture and trade. These platforms will include meeting with the Ministries’ management as well as Members of Parliament and others who can influence policy.
