Identifying risks and guiding recovery efforts in Malawi (English)

In January 2015, Malawi experienced some of the most devastating flooding in its history. In the aftermath, the Government of Malawi conducted a post-disaster needs assessment (PDNA), with support from the European Union (EU), the Global Facility for Disaster Reduction and Recovery (GFDRR), the United Nations (UN), and the World Bank. The Government of Malawi has been preparing a recovery framework to help prioritize and implement recovery and reconstruction investments, with support from the EU, GFDRR, the UN, and the World Bank. In 2014, GFDRR worked with Malawi’s Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DoDMA) and other partners to strengthen the Malawi Spatial Data Platform (MASDAP) GeoNode by adding additional datasets. A framework has been launched in October 2015, and with continued GFDRR participation, a robust monitoring and evaluation system will be established to track and update recovery priorities. Upon completion, the recovery framework will serve to prioritize interventions, steer investments toward financial gaps, and inform the government’s recovery budget allocations. In addition, the World Bank, with GFDRR support, will continue to implement the four-year Malawi Floods Emergency Recovery Project, which was informed by the PDNA.
