“I have recently graduated as a Physical Planner and I am currently consolidating my GIS & Remote Sensing data collection skills by further training in drone assembly and flying. I have the hope and belief that one day MIPP will go full throttle by offering skills in drones & issuing drone pilot licences”

“Physical planning is a noble profession entrusted with the responsibility of making the face of the earth aesthetically and efficiently hospitable in an orderly manner, not just for the human being but also for the whole creation. I see MIPP to be in a position to advocate and see to it that this happens in Malawi. MIPP does this through seminars, CPDs, publications, trainings, consultancy, and so forth”

“As a professional body for physical Planners in Malawi, MIPP provides a Platform for Planners to dissuss issues in the Planning field and provides an opportunity for Planners to network. I once benefitted from a Career Development programme that was organized for by the Institute in Salima. Among another things we looked at how land use planning is key in the management of floods which affects human settlements.”
