This report on basic agricultural public expenditure diagnostic review of Malawi points out that agriculture is the backbone of the Malawi economy, contributing about 30 percent to GDP total and representing nearly 85 percent of employment and 80 percent of foreign exchange earnings, but it remains largely subsistence agriculture handicapped by low productivity and high vulnerability. The development of agriculture and food security are among the main priorities of the Government of Malawi to ensure sustainable economic growth and poverty reduction. This Review of agricultural expenditure (MRAP), conducted at the request of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MoAFS), aims to enhance efficiency, efficiency and fairness of future public spending in the sector and contribute to the very successful implementation of the sectoral approach for agriculture (ASWAp). This study also showed that agricultural spending in Malawi is penalized by many inefficiencies which significantly reduce its impact. They include: a. Planning and ineffective implementation of the budget, penalized by the heavy procedures, low expenditure control, poor monitoring and evaluation and low staff motivation due to erosion of wages; b. The weak link between the policy framework and budget planning, compounded by the high fragmentation of aid and the high proportion of off-budget spending accompanied by weak supervision and Government ownership and high transaction costs; c. Inefficiencies of Farm Input Subsidy Program (FISP); d. The strong centralization of the development and implementation of agricultural policies, with insufficient participation of decentralized administrations and non-state actors.
