The UN comes together to provide food security to those most in need in Malawi

Social Protection for the Sustainable Development Goals (SPA4SDG) is a UN Joint Programme that aims to adapt the Malawi social protection system to meet emergency food needs and reduce the vulnerability of those most at risk of food insecurity by 2022, while strengthening the social protection system for all vulnerable households across the lifecycle. The programme combines advancing an innovative Shock-Sensitive Social Protection (SSSP) prototype with reinforced financial structures and the transformation of existing policies into legal frameworks to enhance the existing social protection system to be more robust, comprehensive, and sustainable, leaving no one behind.
