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.
