As a federal enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH supports the German Government in achieving its objective in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development. GIZ operates in more than 130 countries around the globe. In Malawi, GIZ has been working for more than 50 years. Malawi is a priority for German international cooperation and currently focuses on three priority areas: education, health and private sector development in rural areas. In addition to our work on these areas, we also work on public financial and economic management and social protection.
The German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) commissioned GIZ to implement the Social Protection Programme (SPP) in Malawi. The SPP programme has been operational in Malawi since 2015 and has entered its second phase (2018-2021).
GIZ SPP seeks to support the Government of Malawi to strengthen the coordination and implementation of the Malawi National Social Support Programme II (MNSSP II). MNSSP II is the overarching framework for the implementation of the national social protection policy. It has 5 pillars including consumption support, resilient livelihoods and shock sensitive social protection, systems strengthening and linkages. GIZ is working closely with the Poverty Reduction and Social Protection Division (PRSP) in the Ministry of Economic Planning and Development and Public Sector Reforms.
In the second phase of the GIZ SPP, implementation has commenced in 9 districts in the central region and 11 districts in the southern region.
