    Mozambique, Africa

    Examines cases of confrontation over land in Northern Zambezia, Mozambique. One large company withdrew rather than fight local peasants and take over land being used to grow food. But two other investors chose to push ahead, and have come into conflict with local peasant communities.

    Includes discourse on land tenure reforms and tenure security, conceptual framework, evolution of land tenure reform and agricultural productivity in Mozambique, data and estimation strategy, results, conclusion. Analyzes the determinants of household perceived tenure insecurity and its effect on long-term land-related investment. The presence of a significant demand for certificates of land ownership implies the opportunities to strengthen the pro-poor impacts of the ongoing land reform programmes by establishing a system that would respond to this demand effectively.

    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.

    This paper analyses the shifting role of South African farmers, agribusiness and capital elsewhere in the Southern African region and the rest of the continent. It explores recent trends in this expansion, and investigates the interests and agendas shaping such deals, and the ideologies and discourses of legitimation employed in favour of them. While for the past two decades small numbers of South African farmers have moved to Mozambique, Zambia and several other countries, this trend seems to be undergoing both a quantitative and a qualitative shift.

    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

    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 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

    We preliminarily find that providing sustainable land management (SLM) training to standard contact farmers and having them maintain demonstration plots within the community on a whole had low impact on the knowledge and adoption of SLM practices. However, the aspect of our intervention that targeted a traditionally disadvantaged group as far as their access to extension services, women, was somewhat successful in terms of improving their SLM knowledge and adoption rates. Having a female contact farmer increased the number of SLM techniques adopted by women by 10 percent.
