.According to a statement from UNDP Malawi Office on Sunday, Clark will meet President Peter Mutharika to discuss the UN’s support towards critical reform processes, inclusive growth and national development planning processes.

“The discussions will also look at the post 2015 Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) which will be considered for the adoption by the UN General Assembly in September this year to succeed the Millennium Development Goals (MDG’s),” it said.

She will engage with senior government officials, parliamentarians and Civil Society Organizations (CSO’s) in high level discussions on key development issues in the country.

    I wish I was part of her lecture – and learn of how can Malawi be re developed from the devastating 2015 floods which not only killed people but also destroyed our little infrastructure.

  2. Felix says:

    This lady is not a top UN official. She is just another low ranking UN worker who has been given allowances to come to Malawi for a holiday. Do u think the UN cares about Malawi? Why cant Ban Kimon come himself instead of sending some low ranking officers to fool us as if they really care. Bulls*&^%$t
