Malawi is a small, landlocked country with a population of approximately 13 million people, growing at 2.8 percent annually. The population is predominantly rural with a rapidly urbanizing sector. The country has few mineral resources. Its economy is highly dependent on rain-fed agriculture, and around 85 percent of the population consists of agricultural smallholders and their dependents. Farming generates 35 to 40 percent of gross domestic product, mainly through production of tobacco, maize, sugar and tea.
