Mozambique

Summary

Mozambique remains one of the world’s poorest countries: it ranked 185th out of 186 in the 2013 UN Human Development Index, while 60% of Mozambicans live on less than $1.25 day and 55% below the national poverty line for basic needs. However, Mozambique also has had one of the fastest growing economies in the world with GDP growth averaging 7% over 2001–11. The country will reach a crossroads within the next decade, with the potential to accelerate development as a result of the discovery of large coal and gas reserves. It also has excellent potential for agriculture and as a gateway country for landlocked countries.

Top priorities

  • support basic service provision for health, education, water and sanitation
  • improve the ability of citizens to hold decision makers to account
  • drive more inclusive economic growth, ensuring that the poorest in Mozambique benefit from the potential in sectors such as agriculture and natural resources

Help with Sector and Budget Figures
Please note that although budgets are generally split by year, some departments publish budgets that span multiple years. These are represented in the first year of their allocation. Cross-government allocations such as Prosperity Fund and Conflict, Stability and Security Fund are known to duplicate budgets published by other departments, as well as using multi-year budgets.
