The German Government also assists Malawi within the framework of regional development cooperation. One example is the ‘Cotton made in Africa’ programme which aims to improve the income of cotton farmers in eight African countries, including Malawi. In addition to this, Germany cooperates with pan-African and regional African organisations, networks and private sector stakeholders. One particularly important partner of Germany’s regional cooperation is the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

This project addresses the fact that wildlife conservation and the fight against illegal wildlife trafficking require cross-border cooperation.
