STED in Malawi

Selected sectors: Oilseeds and Horticulture sectors

Within the framework of the "Scaling-up STED" project funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (SIDA), the STED project in Malawi was developed to respond to the request by the Government of Malawi to support achievement of the Malawi National Export Strategy (NES 2012). The NEP has identified lack of skills as one of the factors limiting the capacity of the export sectors prioritized by the NES. In addition, the STED project is also designed in response to the Government's request to support towards implementation of the Action Plan on Skills for Employment.
