Assessment of Policy Implementation for Environment and Natural Resources Management in Malawi: Analytical Report December, 2010

There are a number of challenges to effective implementaon of environment and natural resources management policies and legislation. Poverty, overpopulation and the resulting resource scarcity, capacity constraints within the relevant institutions as well as inherent policy incoherence that make coordination difficult to achieve. Various institutions continue to improve on their respective policy and legislation framework as well as the systems to ensure effective implementation and enforcement . We analyze here some of the main mechanisms these policy and legislation framework utilize for implementation and enforcement; we will assess the effectiveness of these instruments and the opportunities available to improve the governance of environment and natural resources in Malawi. We also consider the need for the revision of the Environment Management Act as the anchor for the ENRM legal framework and make proposals for facilitating its enactment and implementation.
