This study investigates the contribution of social capital to the performance of Small and medium enterprises (SMEs). It was conducted in Blantyre urban among women who own small and Medium Enterprises. The study findings, based on literature review and field interviews, demonstrate that women are able to build and use social capital to access financial capital, market opportunities and business related information. However, while literature present formal social capital in form of formal business institutions as important in the performance of SMEs as they get established, this study has found that informal social capital continues to play an important role in the performance of both new and established WOEs. In particular, the study has found that over 50% of WOEs depend on informal social capital to access investment capital, market opportunities, labor and business information. These findings point to the need to incorporate informal business related institutions in policy making related to improvement of SMEs and WOEs in Malawi.

It takes good policies that are well implemented to improve several aspects of people's lives. Sub-Saharan African Countries and Malawi are hard hit by HIV/AIDS. Human development is hampered by negative effects of HIV infection. If prevention is optimized, the efforts and resources dedicated to treatment of HIV/AIDS could be directed towards improving people's social economic development. Execution of HIV prevention and related programs require enabling policies or guidelines. This work provides lessons to move policies into successful implementation. Key barriers include, non-involvement of key personnel in policy making process, lack of awareness about the actual policy, lack of supervision, lack of systems coordination, poor policy harmonization and shortage of manpower to implement policies. Facilitators include, supportive supervision, effective partnerships with key players and good political will. Policy implementation can be improved by, greater involvement in policy-making process for key personnel, training/sensitization about the policies, good coordination among policy players and clear supervision mechanism involving leaders at lower level.

Bioethics is moral capital. Many countries have been investing their resources in knowledge and skills development (human capital) only, while ignoring right attitude (value-based learning and character formation).This book gives practical guidance on the use of bioethics in decision-making process and mind-building. From African umunthuology moral principle the author develops the KAS model for sustainable professionalism. The author proposes Moral Capital Index, LEGS framework (Leadership, Ethical engagement, Governance and Systems) for policy implementation and advocates for moral transformation pedagogy in Malawi and other African countries in order to benefit from moral capital dividend. Moral capital is the basis for sustainable professionalism and development, nationally and globally. Failure to invest in moral capital is costly in terms of containment costs, moral hazards, corruption, and loss of competitiveness. In the modern world where the knowledge gap is narrowing through ICT countries and individuals will gain comparative advantage through moral capital. Therefore moral capital education and mind-building are necessary building blocks for a resilient, growing economy.

Civil Society and Policy-Making in Malawi
57,90 € *

Civil society organisations (CSOs) are potentially important public policy actors. Those who promote them believe that involving CSOs in policy processes will lead to greater participation of all citizens in policymaking. Even though CSOs are an important policy actor, several factors undermine their significance for policy processes influence. A very small number of organisations undertake policy advocacy leaving out Grass Roots Organisations (GROs) and other mechanisms to involve the poor's concerns in policies supposedly made for their benefit. The aid donors' focus on a small group of technical advocacy organisations has contributed to a narrowed conception of CSOs. Therefore, the book calls for extension of current civil society policy advocacy practice and rhetoric to include grassroots-based organisations.

Doctoral Thesis / Dissertation from the year 2012 in the subject Social Pedagogy / Social Work, grade: Passed, University of Leeds (School of Education), course: PhD in Science Education, language: English, abstract: The needs of young people in classroom based HIV/AIDS Education in Malawi, the extent to which current classroom practices respond to these needs, and the factors influencing these responses have been explored using questionnaires, interviews, lesson observations, and document analysis. In contrast to previously reported literature on HIV/AIDS Education in Malawi, the present study has drawn pupils' needs directly from the pupils' themselves, focussed on classroom practice, and triangulated the various data sets to give a comprehensive picture of HIV/AIDS Education in Malawi. Pupils identified a need for open discussion climates on HIV/AIDS issues despite a conservative cultural and religious adult world that is not open. They also identified a need for explicit and accurate knowledge on HIV/AIDS issues, opportunities to acquire behavioural skills for HIV prevention, and involvement of external speakers. The needs of the pupils have not been adequately addressed by the current classroom practice. Factors which influenced this can be linked to lack of policies that are responsive to culture and religion, ineffective and inadequate teaching policy guidelines, and lack of a policy prioritizing HIV/AIDS education by making it examinable. The findings suggest that in future, effective HIV/AIDS Education needs to be informed by the pupils' needs. To address these needs, support from the wider society and related policies, coupled with appropriate management and classroom practice will be required. Understanding these lessons is a must for HIV/AIDS curriculum developers, policy makers and implementers in any education system.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) and its Member States are making renewed efforts to revive agriculture in the region. Given that much of it is water-stressed, appropriate and sustainable land and water management practices are vital to achieving this objective. Recognising this, SADC's Land and Water Management Applied Research and Training Programme has convened two scientific symposiums. Held in Lilongwe, Malawi, in February 2006, the inaugural symposium brought together R&D practitioners from 10 participating SADC countries to deliberate on land and water management for sustainable agriculture, and discuss how the most recent research and development advances in land and water management might be made more relevant to policy-makers as well as the region's small-scale farmers. The edited contributions to the first symposium appear in this volume. The second symposium was held in Gaborone, Botswana, in February 2007, and brought together regional experts to discuss opportunities for improving water use and water use efficiency in agriculture in semi-arid and arid areas. The edited contributions to the second symposium appear in a companion volume entitled Land and Water Management in Southern Africa: Towards Better Water Use in Agriculture in Semi-Arid and Arid Areas (AISA 2008). It is hoped that these two volumes will help to disseminate regional expertise on land and water management to a wider audience, thus helping policy-makers and others to strengthen the agricultural sector in the region, and, in so doing, improve its food security and the wellbeing of its people.
