This study confirms the presence of a gender gap in agricultural productivity in rural Malawi. Agriculture comprises 30% of Malawi's gross domestic product. Closing the gender gap in Malawi could result in an increase of USD 100 million in gross domestic product and lift 238,000 Malawians out of poverty each year over a 10-year period.
