Malawi is situated west and north of Mosambique, to the south of Tanzania and to the east of Zambia. The topography consists of highlands split by the Great Rift Valley and enormous Lake Malawi - the third largest lake in Africa. Malawi is among the world's least-developed countries. The economy is heavily based on agriculture and fisheries. Malawi is every year exposed to severe floodings with severe damages to infrastructure and loss of lives.

We cooperate with Department of Climate Change and Meteorological Services (DCCMS), which is the national meteorological institute in Malawi and member of WMO.

In Malawi we work in a project named Hewadi. This project aims to build competence on issues related to improved weather and climate services. An important area of work is to explore the benefits of using Digital Public Goods to strengthen and add value to weather and climate services.

There are major challenges related to climate adaptation and the project aims to make the partner institutions able to achieve the best possible position to provide useful services to both public administration and the general population.

In Malawi we work with the tools DIANA, harp and the dataset MET Norway Weather api. The collaboration with DCCMS focuses on verification and digital competence related to the use of weather data as digital public goods.
