On 15 November, the fifth bilateral consultation on development cooperation between Flanders and Malawi took place in Lilongwe. This meeting marked the start of the negotiations for the third Country Strategy Paper between Flanders and Malawi for the period 2019-2023.
On 17 November the Government of Flanders granted 4.5 million euros to International Red Cross Flanders and the World Health Organization (WHO) for projects in Malawi and Mozambique. Both countries are heavily affected by the consequences of climate change. As a result, the socio-economic conditions of the population are under even more pressure.
