Description:
Malawi is on track towards attaining half of the environmental sustainability indicators, although the land area covered by forest has declined from 32.9 percent in 1990 to 27.3 per cent in 2010. This decline can be attributed to fuelwood collection, subsistence and commercial agriculture (UNEP 2008). Tobacco farming, which accounts for almost 80 per cent of export earnings, is one of the major causes of deforestation. Government is committed to reverse this trend by intensifying reforestation, afforestation, promotion of natural regeneration, and forest protection and management programmes.
