What is the malawi 2063 first 10-year implementation plan?

The Malawi 2063 First 10-Year Implementation Plan (MIP-1) is the operationalisation strategy of the Malawi 2063 (MW2063) national vision for the period 2021 to 2030. This is the first MIP in a series of four 10-year plans that will be developed to drive the implementation and realization of the MW2063.

MIP-1 builds on lessons learned and successes from the Malawi Growth and Development Strategy (MGDS) III which was the last operationalization plan of Vision 2020. Considering the time- overlap of the MDGS III, whose implementation period was 2017 to 2022, and MIP-1, there is a justified need to carry -over some of the ongoing and promising interventions under MGDS III that align with the MW2063. The development of the MIP-1 also involved a series of consultations and validations with various stakeholders due to the multi- and cross-sectoral nature of the interventions, projects, and programmes to be implemented through the same.

Objectives of MIP-1

MIP-1 aims to meet two key milestones, which are:

• To raise the country`s income status to lower-middle level by 2030.
• To meet most of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) whose end-line target is 2030.

MIP-1 is anchored on the Three Pillars of MW2063, namely Agricultural Productivity and Commercialisation, Industrialisation, and Urbanisation. These Pillars are catalyzed by Seven Enablers, namely; Mindset Change, Effective Governance Systems and Institutions, Enhanced Public Sector Performance, Private Sector Dynamism, Human Capital Development, Economic Infrastructure, and Environmental Sustainability.

Further, MIP-1 has priority strategies and interventions to be implemented towards the actualization of MW2063. It also identifies Quick Wins- interventions that are already in the pipeline or have lower-cost implications, have ready finance commitment or just require scaling up in the next five years, and Game Changers – interventions that can transform Malawi faster. MIP-1 also presents prioritised flagship programmes and projects that will speed up Malawi`s progress towards creating an inclusively wealthy and self-reliant nation.

The Pillar and Enabler Coordination Groups (PECGS) mechanism

The Government of Malawi through the National Planning Commission and the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs established Pillar and Enabler Coordination Groups (PECGs) to ensure a coordinated and systematic approach to the implementation and realization of Malawi 2063 through the MIP-1.

The PECGs replaced the Sector Working Groups (SWGs), so that there is effective coordination in the implementation of Malawi 2063 by focusing on its Pillar and Enabler priorities. The PECGs have sector and/or technical working groups as deemed necessary for their efficient and effective performance. The PECGs are also responsible for defining multi-year pillar and enabler priorities as well as advising Government on the resources required for meeting the defined MIP-1 priorities within their respective pillars and/or enablers.

The primary objective of PECGs is to foster a Pillar and Enabler-centric approach to coordinated planning and management; and promote focus on prioritized and strategic issues within the Pillar and Enabler.

This entails that Government coordinates the implementation of activities in a PECG to ensure leadership in the sustainable socioeconomic transformation and development of the country. The PECG, therefore, facilitates the channeling of resources towards a common planning and management framework centered on the country's priorities and vision.
