This work stream has, since 2011, engaged Government vertically from sub-District to Ministerial levels, sharing Policy best practice and development in the UK for consideration in Malawi. Two examples (of many) are the inclusion of the NWRA and MOA/WD into the OECD review of the Scottish Water Sector, and sharing with all 5 Water Boards how benchmarking and KPI regulatory targets are managed by Scottish Water

Laws, regulations, policies and plans are a critical part in the development of the sustainable long term management of the water resources in Malawi. Studying and fully understanding these documents and their context, the links and gaps between them and their implementation is one of the new activities of the CJFII.


Likewise, sharing experiences with the Scottish water sector in rural and urban areas and the current trends in international water governance will be another focus of this work stream. Thus, the Programme will foster and continue improving its engagement with the key stakeholders in the Malawian water sector (i.e. WASAMA, the Ministry at national, regional and local level and the Districts Councils among others).
