Malawi’s decentralization policy requires all group villages to have a Village Action Plan (VAP) which represents development programme at community level. The Village Development Committee (VDC), which is the lowest tier of the District Assembly administration is mandated to facilitate planning and implementation of the Village Action Plans. Members of the VDC are composed of community members elected by the community they represent. The Village Action Plans are then incorporated in the District Development Plans at the District level.
