The Government of Malawi, with the support from UNDP, has secured funding from the Green Climate Fund (GCF) to scale up the use of modernized early warning systems (EWS) and climate information in the country. The project will work with communities in disaster prone and food-insecure districts to co-develop tailored weather- and climate-based agricultural advisories to be disseminated through ICT/mobile, print and radio channels. The project will also scale up best practices in promoting community readiness to respond to disasters and mitigate key risks. Community-based EWS will be scaled up in flood-prone areas and capacities to use and respond to warnings will be strengthened at the national, district and community levels.

The project has three expected outputs: (a) expansion of observation networks that generate climate-related data to save lives and safeguard livelihoods from extreme climate events; (b) development and dissemination of products and platforms for climate-related information/services for vulnerable communities and livelihoods; and (c) strengthening communities’ capacities to use EWS/CI to prepare for and respond to climate related disasters. The project is being implemented in 21 districts by the Department of Disaster Management Affairs (DODMA), in collaboration with the Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services (DCCMS), Department of Water Resources (DWR), Department of Agricultural Extension Services (DAES), Department of Fisheries (DoF), and the National Smallholder Farmers Association of Malawi (NASFAM).

Under the project a set of two lake-based weather and wave buoys will be installed on Lake Malawi, to measure weather and wave conditions and provide data and information that is not currently available. In order to install the weather/wave buoys and conduct regular maintenance a vessel will be procured.  The boat will also be used for safety on water operations and regulating water transportation and fishing in areas close to where the lake weather/wave buoys will be installed.
