Malawi Institutional Architecture Assessment Report
PURPOSE OF THE ASSESSMENT
Institutional Architecture provides for a framework for analyzing a country‟s capacity to undertake food security change.2 This is accomplished by identifying implementation barriers, designing policy options, and coordinating actions across public and private institutions. This assessment examines the components of a policy-making process; providing USAID, local policymakers, and other key stakeholders with information on possible constraints that could stymie effective policy change. This work will help inform USAID as it explores new approaches for technical assistance to improve the capacity and performance of the policy change process.
