We really encourage members of the Scotland Malawi Partnership to feed into this important review in the coming weeks.

The Scottish Government asks that organisations and individuals attend just one event. The events with the diaspora, the public sector, academics and the private sector are specifically targeted to these groups to allow focused discussion. The Scottish Government asks those not specifically in these groups to instead attend one of the NGO or general public meetings.
While the SMP will be making its own submission as a network, for which we will be seeking member input in the coming weeks, our top priority is ensuring ALL our members feed directly into the consultation themselves.
We are keen that none of our members miss this opportunity to have their say.
