The Malawi Experience 2001-3

8. Humanitarian Response
 
  • EMOP agreed as main pipeline, gradually up to 30% of population, but supported by individual NGO & faith group efforts


  • Cash & in-kind imports (ca 250kt of maize etc.) by WFP


  • NGO consortium with CARE lead for food distribution, covering whole country with agreed systems and priorities


  • Targeting based on initial geographic vulnerability supported by community-level household selection – accepted as imprecise but pragmatic and being addressed in VAC reviews


  • Therapeutic feeding systems established by UNICEF with Africare as lead in a further NGO consortium


  • Health surveillance and response led by WHO


  • Response effectiveness greatly assisted by enthusiastic and good local agency heads for WFP, FAO, UNICEF & WHO


  • Agricultural recovery helped by Winter TIP for 300,000 H/H and 2002/3 TIP for 2+m H/H supported by small NGO schemes, with CISANET network support
