Hintergrundinformation


In 1992 Mozambique became a priority country of the Austrian Development Cooperation (ADC), with the Province of Sofala as Austria’s focus area of intervention.


In the absence of a valid country strategy, Austria’s engagement is based on the Three Years’ Programme on Austrian Development Policy 2016 – 2018 and on the Five Years Plan of the Government of Mozambique 2015 – 20201. Austria’s focus in Mozambique is on agriculture and rural water supply and sanitation, with a planned emphasis on the water-energy-food security nexus.


Given the current economic situation, the political tensions and recurrent incidents of violence in the four provinces in the central region of Mozambique, including Sofala, ADC seeks a deeper understanding of the political economy links and challenges for its future engagement in Sofala Province. The study is another step in the process of the elaboration of the Austrian country strategy with Mozambique and its outcomes will feed into the design of ADC’s future engagement in Sofala Province.
