This report contributes to the understanding of linkages between population dynamics, climate change, and sustainable development in Malawi, a country that typifies the core population and climate change challenges highlighted above. The report presents analyses of key population and climate change challenges that Malawi is facing, and identifies opportunities for enhancing integrated approaches to address these issues in Malawi based on an assessment of the policy and program landscape. The report is aimed at helping policymakers, donors, and civil society understand the importance of prioritizing population issues and climate change in development planning and resource allocation, and the need for integrated responses to these challenges in order to ensure sustainable development in Malawi.

This report calls on governments, donors, and civil society to invest more in population and climate change work, to address the two issues together in policies and programs, and to build the technical capacity to develop programs and research. Ensuring women in sub-Saharan Africa who wish to avoid pregnancy have access to family planning can reduce population pressures and reduce vulnerability to climate change impacts. It can also help meet other development goals, including reducing poverty and maternal mortality, and improving education.
