This report is part of a larger exercise of monitoring and evaluating Mozambique’s poverty reduction strategy, focussing on three districts in Mozambique and using a combination of quantitative and qualitative data. It analyses the constitution and dynamics of poverty and well-being in the rural district of Murrupula, in Nampula Province, by revisiting four local communities and a total of 120 households, three years after our first visit in 2006.
