The government of Malawi seeks to develop programs that will enhance Malawi’s ability to attract investment in climate change mitigation and adaptation activities. The government has already initiated a number of actions and seeks to expand the scope and impact of climate change mitigation finance within Malawi. To assist with these efforts, the World Bank has commissioned technical assistance on the identification of potential opportunities for Malawi’s engagement in carbon markets, as well as an institutional assessment of the country’s capacity to effectively secure those opportunities. This report provides the results of this assessment
