These programs have involved many government agencies, NGOs such as Care International, Catholic Relief Services, and ActionAid; International Research Centers such as CIMMYT, IITA, ICRISAT and the World Agroforestry Center; private firms such as Terra Global Capital, Agricane Malawi Ltd. and the National Farmers’ Association of Malawi (NASFAM); and educational institutions such as Lilongwe University of Science and Technology (LUANAR) and Mzuzu University.

Unique Features of TLC’s Success and Expertise

Development of Participatory Governance Structures
Development of participatory governance structures with communities to improve the conservation, biodiversity and sustainable management of natural resources on communal and public lands.

Leadership in pioneering the development, testing and promotion of sustainable agricultural and NRM practices suited to different agro-ecological zones based on farm level results:

Crop diversification with emphasis on drought tolerant varieties as well as high value food and cash crops integrated with climate smart practices such as natural tree regeneration on farm, agroforestry and conservation agriculture.
Irrigation of high value food and cash crops with solar systems, drip kits, stream diversion and treadle pumps tailored to match the resources available, terrain and farmer capabilities to increase food security, nutrition, incomes and climate resilience.
Integrating livestock into farming systems to increase incomes and animal protein in the diet while reducing risks and vulnerability to climate change from over-reliance on rainfed farming.
Promotion of animal draft power and small-scale mechanization with local entrepreneurs and agro-dealers.
Integrated watershed management and sustainable use of natural resources to restore and build eco-system resilience.
Development and management of sustainable models to manage commercial forest plantations.
Design and use of the TLC rocket stove, a durable cook-stove registered with the UN CDM and used by 200,000+ households in Malawi alone. With a wood savings of 65% vs. open fires, it has immediate impacts on deforestation and saves enormous time and labor by women and girls to find, cut and carry wood far from the household. The results greatly lower the burden on women and girls for this labor intensive task while reducing the risks of injury and assaults.
