The Malawi Experience 2001-3

4. Initial Response
 
  • Jan 2002 donors commenced support to NGOs (e.g. DFID to SCF), but uncoordinated and based on poor and not comparable field information


  • Discussions opened with WFP (+WHO & UNICEF)


  • WFP response design limited by local office inexperience and low capacity – little credibility with potential donors


  • MG continued denial even on Presidential visits to EU, UK, US until finally MG declared “State of Disaster” 27/2/2002


  • MG Disaster Committee formed but unclear role & capacity and lack of engagement with other stakeholders led to donor approach to VP to convene round-table
