Abstract

This paper briefly analysed the social costs and environment impact of the Moatize- Nkaya Nacala Rail on the Malawian communities as well as the economic impact on the country. The findings are that Malawi is worse off than before in view of poor negotiations and failure to enter into agreement with Mozambican Government. It is recommended that Malawi must introduce a carbon levy of USD5.00 per tonne and earn at least USD100,000,000.00 in each fiscal year. This money should be used for restoration of the environment across the country but also serve the affected communities. This will be a guaranteed source of much needed forex as well.
