Afforestation Project

Afforestation

Malawi has the highest rates of deforestation rate in southern Africa, estimated at 2.4% per annum.

Energy

Malawi is heavily dependent on biomass energy for cooking and heating purposes especially in rural areas

Soil & Water Conservation

Malawi’s agricultural based economy faces significant soil degradation

Waste Management

Inappropriate waste management is an environmental health hazard that affects public hygiene and sanitation in towns

The Malawi Environmental Endowment Trust (MEET) is a non-profit, independent organization registered in March 1999 under the Incorporation Act of 1962 of the laws of the Government of Malawi. MEET was established as a sustainable funding mechanism to ease the problem of late and limited funding. Through the management of a grant facility, the Trust supports priority activities developed in cooperation with the country’s development partners.

The environment in Malawi is undergoing severe degradation; a situation caused by a rapidly growing and rural based population that is largely dependent on natural resources for its livelihood. The reliance on natural resources has exerted pressure on the environment causing a number of problems such as soil erosion, deforestation, water degradation, and loss of biodiversity among many others. Inadequate funding is a major hindrance to the implementation of environmental and natural resource management activities in Malawi.

Vision
To enable all people to address the environmental challenges in Malawi.

Mission
To administer the endowment fund and other funds on behalf of the people of Malawi in order to provide sustainable support for improved environmental management.

Help us reach more people with environmental friendly technologies by sponsoring a project.
