Progress against the Warsaw Framework for REDD+

Targeted support is being provided for review of the legal and policy environment, a NFMS roadmap, an Institutional Context Analysis; a stakeholder engagement and participation strategy; and a Corruption Risk Assessment. The support has been harmonized with the CNA approved in 2014.

National REDD+ Strategy/Action Plan
In 2015 an inception workshop brought over 100 participants from Government, Civil Society, Community Based Organizations and the Private Sector. The inception workshop laid the foundation or key analyses of the legal and policy framework for REDD+, institutional context, corruption risks, and land and natural resource tenure regimes are being conducted. The findings from these reports are being be integrated into the National REDD+ Strategy roadmap which is progressing well. In addition, knowledge management strategy is also under development. The ongoing work builds on Malawi’s REDD+ Readiness Action Plan and will be mainstreamed into key national planning and policy processes in Malawi.
