    Mozambique, Africa

    Although Mozambique has considerable agricultural potential, rural poverty remains extremely high. This paper examines the extent to which global and domestic price distortions affect agricultural production and national poverty. The author develops a computable general equilibrium (CGE) and micro-simulation model of Mozambique that is linked to the results of a global model. This framework is used to examine the effects of eliminating global and national price distortions.

    Mozambique, Africa

    Mozambique, the only Lusophone country covered in the agribusiness indicators initiative, has had a turbulent history since independence. Civil unrest over some 20 years and frequent drought in southern Mozambique, coupled with floods near the many waterways that transect the country (mainly east-west), have inhibited an agricultural transformation. Even so, Mozambique could be a regional breadbasket. The country has much potentially usable arable land, along with access to river water for irrigation in many agricultural production zones, particularly in central and northern Mozambique.

    Policies to promote adaptation climate
    risks often rely on the willing cooperation of the intended
    beneficiaries. If these beneficiaries disagree with policy
    makers and programme managers about the need for adaptation,
    or the effectiveness of the measures they are being asked to
    undertake, then implementation of the policies will fail. A
    case study of a resettlement programme in Mozambique shows
    this to be the case. Farmers and policy-maker disagreed

    This report is part of a broader global
    study, the Economics of Adaptation to Climate Change (EACC),
    which has two principal objectives: (a) to develop a global
    estimate of adaptation costs for informing international
    climate negotiations; and (b) to help decision makers in
    developing countries assess the risks posed by climate
    change and design national strategies for adapting to it.
    The purpose of this study is to assist the Government of

    Mozambique's continuous efforts to
    sustain economic growth and reduce poverty face a number of
    constraints including its economic and political history,
    and its geography and climatic conditions. It is widely
    accepted that future economic growth of the country will
    continue to rely on its natural resources base and,
    specifically, on sustainable use of land and water
    resources. Mozambique has plentiful land and water resources

    This assessment, reflecting
    poverty's many dimensions in Mozambique, combines
    multiple disciplines and diagnostic tools to explore
    poverty. It draws on a combination of approaches and tools
    from three separate analytical diagnostics developed by the
    World Bank: poverty assessment, country gender assessment,
    and country social analysis. It uses monetary, human, and
    social indicators and combines quantitative and qualitative

    The dramatic increases in world food and
    fuel prices during 2007 and early 2008 may set back
    Mozambique's considerable advances in poverty reduction
    during the past decade. This study assesses the impact of
    higher fuel and food prices at both household and
    macroeconomic levels, and also considers policy options to
    mitigate some of the negative impacts of higher prices.
    Rising world prices certainly represents a negative

    The objective of this Agriculture Public
    Expenditure Review (AgPER) is to provide an assessment of
    the present situation and to offer recommendations to
    improve the effectiveness and efficiency of public spending
    in agriculture in Mozambique. The report provides a
    sectorwide picture of the magnitude and structure of public
    spending for agriculture in Mozambique over the past six
    years, and an overall assessment of the budget process in

    Household enterprises -- usually
    one-person-operated tiny informal enterprises -- are a
    rapidly growing source of employment in Sub-Saharan Africa,
    especially in lower-income countries. Household enterprises
    tend to operate with limited interest or support from
    governments. This is the case in Mozambique, where neither
    the poverty reduction strategy nor small and medium
    enterprise development policies include household

    Agriculture and fisheries are the main pillars of Mozambique's economy, having contributed in the last few years to more than 25 percent of the gross domestic product (GDP) and around 7 to 11 percentage points of the rate of economic growth. Agricultural development in Mozambique has been part of the government agenda because it is crucial to reducing poverty within rural zones.
