Expertise on developing a project to support the consolidation of peace for the Province Sofala in Mozambique
The objective of this project is to design an intervention to support the consolidation of peace for the Province Sofala in Mozambique.
Design of an intervention which is based on a context and market system analysis and a gender analysis.
Based on a request by the provincial government of Sofala an intervention will be designed in order to support the consolidation of peace in the Province Sofala. Important stakeholders in this intervention will be provincial state institutions, the private sector, civil society and community representatives. This intervention will benefit 700.000 people in the Province Sofala.
Design of a high quality Description of Action (DoA) based on:
- stakeholder consolidations on Maputo and Beira
- a comprehensive context and market system analysis consisting of desk-research, document review, interviews and focus group discussion
- a gender analysis
The impacts of several years of intermittent partisan violence in the provinces of the central region -Sofala, Manica and Tete - have resulted in political disagreements and disputes over both national and regional issues between the two main partisan adversaries.
The EU’s proposed Action Document for Support to the consolidation of peace through local governance and early economic development in Mozambique under the Annual Action Programme 2020, financed under the 11th European Development Fund, in favour of Mozambique, therefore outlines two inter-related Specific Objectives:
1) Specific Objective 1: Strengthening local governance for peacebuilding and decentralisation;
2) Specific Objective 2: Early economic recovery and immediate peace dividends.
The EU foresees indirect management under objective 2 with the Austrian Development Agency in the Province of Sofala.
