Malawi End-of-Term Report 2016- 2018 – For Public Comment
In 2019, the Independent Reporting Mechanism (IRM) published the end of term report for Malawi’s first action plan. The report covers the full action plan implementation period of September 2016 through August 2018.
In Malawi, the IRM researcher Paul Kwengwere’s findings are summarized below:
“Malawi’s first action plan included measures to implement freedom of information and increase extractives’ revenue transparency. While the government passed the Access to Information Bill during the action plan period, the Bill has lacked practical implementation. Moving forward, Malawi could improve the design of future commitments by including clearer indicators for implementation and making them more directly relevant to OGP values.”
The version of the report for public comment is available here. The two-week public comment period closed on 10 April 2019.
