Friendship with a Purpose

Malawi and Scotland for Sustainable Development

by Kenneth R. Ross

Poverty and underdevelopment continue to present a profound challenge globally. The United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals suggest that "Partnership for the Goals" will be key to success. This booklet explores the innovative people-to-people partnership developed by Malawi and Scotland during the 21st century. It identifies distinctive features of this international collaboration:

• The priority of the relational

• The mobilisation of civil society

• Government in synergy with people

• A reciprocal partnership for development

This is a model that invites emulation and challenges Malawians and Scots to be ambitious as they work together for sustainable development.
