In Malawi, 80 percent of the population sustain their living on agriculture. Due to underdevelopment of irrigation facilities and low agricultural productivity, Malawian industry and economy remains vulnerable. In 2011, Malawi's GNI per capita was 340 US Dollars (WB 2012), one of the lowest income standards in the world ranking. However, there are mining potentials of mineral resources, including rare earth minerals. Thus, diversification and promotion of industries, such like mining, is one of the key challenges for Malawi's development. Addressing Basic Human Needs, like education, healthcare, and access to safe water, is also a challenge for Malawi in achieving inclusive development. To support Malawi in overcoming these obstacles, JICA's operations put primary focus on issues of 1) Sustainable Economic Growth, and 2) Social Development.
