    Government of Malawi realises that upholding of values of human rights is one way of promoting the welfare, dignity and development in line with chapter 4 Section 19 of the Constitution of Malawi on human dignity and personal freedoms. Government recognizes that violation of human rights in the workplace affects performance and service delivery. Sexual harassment (SH) in the workplace is one of the human rights violations affecting both men and women. It is therefore, important that from a human rights perspective, every employee or client who is subjected to various forms of sexual violence receives necessary services and that safeguarding measures are institutionalized. The Public Service Workplace Anti-Sexual Harassment Policy (PSWASHP) will be an entry point for achieving this. The Policy provides a guiding framework for preventing, reporting and responding to sexual harassment issues in the Public Service workplace. It identifies four priority areas, namely: Case Management; Rehabilitation Services for Survivors of Sexual Harassment; Sexual Harassment Safeguards and Conducive Workplace Environment.

  10. An assessment of skills supply and demand for renewable energy, energy efficiency and regional energy integration

    21 August 2023

    The SADC region relies heavily on energy produced from coal and water and has over the years grappled with an energy crisis seen through insufficient and inefficient energy supply. This crisis is mostly a result of a changing climate including droughts, outdated infrastructure and the depletion of natural resources. These natural resources include coal and gas and their use for power generation further contributes to climate change, who’s impacts are being faced globally. There has therefore been a desire and a call to shift towards renewable energy (RE) in the SADC region, which has the resources and conditions to make this shift. This is driven by the SADC Protocol on Energy and the various national policies. The SADC Protocol on Energy (SADC 20 identifies a number of strategic plans over the last 10 years which builds on previous policy. These include “the Regional Energy Access Strategy and Action Plan 2020 to2030 (SADC, 2020), the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Strategy and Action Plan 2016 to 2030 (SADC, 2016), the SADC Industrial Energy Efficiency Programme and the development of the Regional Gas Master Plan” (SADC, 1996).
