The Malawian economy remains very dependent on the exports of tobacco, tea and coffee whose terms of trade have all declined, reducing significantly government foreign exchange revenues. The currency was devalued and this is expected again in late 2011 and/ or 2012.

To compound the macro economic woes, official development assistance (ODA), which usually accounts for 40% of the government’s budget, is falling. $58 million of an IMF extended credit facility remains on hold. The Common Approach to Budget Support funding has also been suspended. These cuts will affect the Farm Input Subsidy Programme (FISP) which is critical to household and national food security. Depending on the quality of the rains, a decline in the scope and scale of the FISP could worsen the food security outlook for 2012, especially in the south of the country.
