The impact of poor government funding on irrigation farming


80 percent of Malawi’s population, which is now at about 15 million, depends on agriculture. Most of these farmers use the method of rainy (rainfed) agriculture rather than irrigation farming. With the effects of climate change in the country, the rainy farming now regularly experiences the impact of climate change such as dry spell, flood and harsh weather that resulted to low or no yields. In this program, producer Tony Gonani of Dzimwe Community Radio focuses on the importance of climate change adaptation in Malawi.
