Mainstreaming Human Mobility Into Malawi’s National Adaptation Plan Process

To address these vulnerabilities and growing risks related to climate change, the Malawian government is undertaking a national adaptation plan (NAP) process to set out a vision for achieving climate-resilient development. It will be critical that the NAP process integrate human mobility for effective, inclusive adaptation.

This briefing note prepared by the Initiative for Climate Action and Development (ICAD) explores the status of Malawi’s NAP process, places human mobility in the context of climate change in Malawi, and uses a gender-responsive approach to identify entry points and opportunities for integrating human mobility—including migration and displacement—into Malawi’s NAP process.
