Lilongwe City Council (LCC) is the governing body responsible for the administration and management of Lilongwe, the capital city of Malawi. Established to oversee the development and maintenance of the city’s infrastructure, services, and amenities, LCC plays a pivotal role in fostering the city’s growth and sustainability.

With a commitment to environmental stewardship, LCC actively engages in initiatives aimed at promoting sustainability and addressing environmental challenges. Through its Environmental Health Department, the council implements various programs focused on waste management, sanitation, and public health. These efforts include waste collection services, public awareness campaigns on waste reduction and recycling, and the enforcement of environmental regulations to ensure a clean and healthy environment for residents.

Moreover, LCC emphasises the importance of green spaces and urban forestry in enhancing the city’s livability and resilience to climate change. The council works to establish and maintain parks, gardens, and green corridors, providing recreational spaces for residents while contributing to biodiversity conservation and carbon sequestration.

In alignment with national and international sustainability goals, Lilongwe City Council collaborates with stakeholders, including government agencies, non-profit organisations, and the private sector, to implement sustainable development projects and initiatives. By prioritising environmental sustainability, LCC aims to create a vibrant, inclusive, and resilient city for current and future generations.
