FORTY YEARS of Official Development Assistance has contributed to high macroeconomic growth, the development of key national institutions and partial successes in the social sectors, but has failed to contribute to poverty reduction beyond the post-war peace dividend.
The evaluations testify to the complexity and high ambitions of many of the development interventions, aiming for development of the state, civil society and the market alike.
A call is made for considering support to basic rural and urban infrastructure, agriculture and informal economic activities and giving direct targeted aid to the poorest – thus adjusting aid to what can be realistically monitored, measured and achieved and at the same time enhancing options for poverty reduction.
This Country Evaluation Brief is part of a series that present relevant knowledge about donors’ development efforts in Mozambique. The brief systematises relevant findings from existing evaluations of development interventions in the country and presents the findings to the reader in a succinct and easily accessible format. The briefs are commissioned and published by Norad.
