    The central goal of the project is to support inclusive growth, growth that substantially improves the living standards of the Mozambican population. This is pursued through a focused research and capacity-building effort, meant to increase analytical capabilities and inform better policy-making in Mozambique. The effort targets four key goals, meant to help shift Mozambique from ‘least developed’ to ‘middle income’ status: (i) employment creation and protection of vulnerable groups; (ii) maintaining long-run macroeconomic balance; (iii) furthering structural transformation; and (iv) improving socio-economic information systems for monitoring and evaluation. The project is undertaken in collaboration with the Mozambican Ministry of Economics and Finance and the University Eduardo Mondlane. Joint activities are also implemented with the University of Copenhagen.
