Mozambique has enjoyed more than 20 years of strong overall economic growth since the end of its civil war, averaging over 7% per year. Government service delivery (e.g. health and education) has improved and infrastructure has been rebuilt. HIV prevalence rates have declined nationally. Donor support has remained high.
Yet, years of colonialism, war and poor governance have yet to be overcome and poverty remains deep and pervasive. Over 80% of the population lives on less than $2 a day and approximately 60% of the population lives in severe poverty. Poverty is greatest in rural areas and it affects women and girls and particularly women-headed households disproportionately. The livelihoods of poor families are largely dependent on natural resources, all of which are under threat, and alternative options for dignified work are exceedingly limited.
