By introducing the concept of rural service centres as an instrument for development, the Malawi government aims to: (1) provide services to the rural population to improve living conditions; (2) make better use of the agricultural production potential by complementing production schemes with social and economic services; (3) work towards a spatially oriented settlement structure which combines regional economics and balanced regional development; (4) create focal points for development in rural areas which provide employment and income opportunities to counteract migration to urban centres. The paper discusses the macro and microeconomic aspects of the National Rural Service Centre Programme. It concludes that the Programme can be promoted through appropriate institutional arrangements and that it does not necessarily have to involve heavy investment.
