    Despite its economic growth in recent years, Mozambique remains in the “least developed” category of countries. To help shift Mozambique to “middle income” status, and to support inclusive growth that improves the living standards of the Mozambican population, this project covers a wide range of research and capacity-building efforts with the aim of training young scholars to collect economic data and to produce high-quality research. Through these activities, the project aims to increase analytical capabilities and inform better policymaking in Mozambique.

    The central goals of the project are to:

    • enhance capacity development and promote North–South and South–South knowledge transfer
    • generate high-quality advice and analysis that is accessible to and can be used by policymakers within and outside the government
    • create employment opportunities and protect vulnerable groups
    • help the nations maintain a long-run macroeconomic balance
    • further structural transformation
    • improve socioeconomic information systems for monitoring and evaluation

    Led by the UNU World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER), this project is supported by the Mozambican Ministry of Economics and Finance, Universidade Eduardo Mondlane, the University of Copenhagen, and the Finnish Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
