WFP Malawi's September edition of its bi-monthly newsletter
16 May 2011
Commissioned by WFP’s Executive Board when approving the Policy, this early evaluation assessed: the quality of the Policy itself; results so far; and the factors influencing these results/progress in implementation.
The Policy was timely, relevant and introduced some important new elements, based on sound principles. There are many positive features in implementation so far, but not as much tangible progress as might have been hoped, due to inherent weaknesses in the Policy and slow implementation of the necessary changes to WFP systems, incentives and procedures.

Malawi has been experiencing a steady influx of refugees as a result of civil conflicts and political instability throughout Africa. Most refugees in Malawi are from the Great Lakes region.
The majority of refugees enter Malawi via Tanzania through the northern district of Karonga. Upon entry into Malawi, new refugees are temporarily accommodated at Karonga transit shelter, then moved to Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Dowa District in the Central Region.
