The overall goal of Malawi"s National Adaptation Programmes of Action (NAPA) is to address urgent and immediate needs for climate change adaptation. About 65% of Malawi"s population lives below the poverty line, making it harder for them to adapt to the adverse impacts of extreme weather events. Thirty-one adaptation options from eight sectors were identified to address the urgent adaptation needs, with emphasis on vulnerable rural communities of Malawi.
