This report presents the results of a biodiversity assessment for Malawi, conducted under the COMPASS II of USAID. The assessment is intended to help USAID/Malawi and COMPASS II to better integrate biodiversity into its ongoing programming. The purpose of the assessment, as stated in the Terms of Reference (Annex 1) is two-fold: 1. To review and summarize available information on the biodiversity of selected critical ecosystems in Malawi (including forested, savannah, and aquatic ecosystems) to document their present status, assess direct and indirect threats to their biodiversity, and summarize current government, NGO and donor programs that contribute to conservation and sustainable natural resources management; and 2. To convene and facilitate a participatory process of identifying opportunities presented by the biodiversity of the critical ecosystems, as well as recommended actions for COMPASS to take both to reduce or mitigate the threats to that biodiversity and to realize the full potential of the opportunities, including mechanisms for documenting and monitoring the links between the economic growth and biodiversity conservation.
