  22. 22. Why a VSO Climate Change Strategy? People first VSOs new global strategy 2010 Climate change becomes a new VSO priority VSO and Climate Change 2011 : Tragically, it is the poorest and most vulnerable who bear the brunt of climate change, since vulnerabilities caused by climate change compound vulnerabilities that exist already.
  23. 23. The main driving force is population growth. Malawis population has tripled since 1966. In 2010, it reached over 15 million and is increasing at a rate of 2.9% (GOM, 2009). What drives environmental degradation in Malawi?
  24. 24. A high percentage of Malawis population build their livelihoods on natural resource exploitation. Agriculture, fishery, and forestry collectively contribute to more than a third of Malawis GDP.
