Population, Climate Change, and Sustainable Development in Malawi

"Malawi is one of the 15 countries categorized as a population and climate change “hotspot” because of its rapidly growing population, water scarcity and falling food production. Malawi’s population has grown from 6 million in 1966 to about 15 million now and the United Nations Population Division projects that it could more than triple to 50 million by 2050, and reach 129 million by 2100. The African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) and Population Action International (PAI) conducted a study to assess the landscape for integrating population and climate change in Malawian development policies and strategies."
