Since the establishment of the Norwegian Embassy in Lilongwe in 1998, Norway has been a firm development partner to the government of Malawi. Malawi has been categorized by the Norwegian Government as one of the main Partner Countries in Africa with a long term strategic cooperation. This means that Norway becomes even more committed to contributing to Malawi’s own development efforts.
As a means of increasing transparency, and by extension accountability, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs wishes to make all its agreements available to the public. Please find an updated overview of current bilateral agreements with Malawi on the Grant Portal. The portal provides an overview of all grants from the Ministry and Norad for which agreements have been entered into, and for which disbursements are planned for this year and for up to the next four years. The overview shows the countries in which the grants are to be used, the grant recipients the Ministry and Norad have entered into agreements with, and the sectors that are to receive funding.
