Malawi is a landlocked country in southeastern Africa. It is wholly within the tropics and occupies a thin strip of land between Zambia and Mozambique protruding southwards into Mozambique along the valley of the Shire River. In the north and north east it also shares a border with Tanzania. Malawi is connected by rail to the Mozambican ports of Nacala and Beira.
The Malawian coat of arms is based on the earlier heraldic arms of Nyasaland. It is supported by a lion and a leopard, above a scroll reading “Unity and Freedom”.
PESA is an independent think-tank promoting regional integration in SADC and providing research on the political economy of development in Africa.
