Full Description

This dataset is based on the donor-reported aid information captured in the Malawi Aid Management Platform (AMP), hosted by the Malawi Ministry of Finance. Using project documents, gathered from in-country donor offices during three missions to Lilongwe, the AidData and CCAPS teams added standardized geocodes using the UCDP/AidData methodology. In total, projects from 30 donor agencies were geocoded for 548 projects, representing $5.3 billion in total commitments (approximately 80% of the total external assistance to Malawi reported to the government from 2000-2011). An interactive map displaying these data along with data on armed conflict, governance, and climate security vulnerability can be viewed at
