SIMLESA Workshop Proceedings Golden Peacock Hotel August 2014, Lilongwe, Malawi

The Malawi Government is very grateful that after hosting the project Formulation workshop in September 2009, the launch of SIMLESA –Phase 1 was also here in Lilongwe in May, 2010. Now, four years after successfully implementing Phase 1, we are gathered here again to launch SIMLESA -2 and plan activities that will have to be implemented in the next four years up to 2018. Our experience has been that many projects hardly make it to the final stage. It is gratifying to see SIMLESA -1 which was approved and launched here in Lilongwe, was successfully implemented and has contributed substantial results in building capacity of farmers and staff through trainings, research equipments, vehicles for easy mobility in conducting research work and above all improving food security of our smallholder farmers in Malawi and across the region in all participating countries.
