Centre for Environmental Policy and Advocacy (Cepa) and Goal Malawi have advanced their preparation for flood resilient programmes in Nsanje and Chikwawa.
Through the Discover Programme, the two organisations have been training people in the two districts to construct evacuation centres.
Last week, officials of the two organisations visited some of the projects located in Traditional Authority Tengani in Nsanje.
Cepa programme officer Stephen Chikuse said the project is under the resilience programme they are jointly implementing in over 11 districts.
“We have many programmes we are doing in a number of districts under Enhancing Community Resilience Programme [ECRP] and Concern Universal’s Discover programmes.”
Goal Malawi programme officer in Nsanje, Bentry Moyo, said they have formed committees that are working with his office and that of the district commissioner.
The community resilience programmes are being implemented in districts such as Nsanje, Chikwawa, Mulanje, Thyolo, Mwanza, Machinga, Balaka, Salima, Dedza and Kasungu. n
