Online Consultations for the Mozambique Systematic Country Diagnostic
Every five years the World Bank takes stock of Mozambique’s development progress and challenges via a Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD) which informs the institution’s 5-year lending and advisory program known as the Country Partnership Framework.
The SCD is prepared in close consultation with the government, development partners, civil society actors, academics and think tanks, the private sector, and other key stakeholders. The SCD seeks to identify the most promising reforms—alongside the most salient challenges—that could help raise the country’s growth performance and ensure that this growth translates into adequate poverty reduction and shared prosperity.
The forthcoming SCD will be organized around three critical pathways by which to attain growth and poverty reduction:
- private sector development
- human capital improvement
- the sustainable management of natural assets and the rural economy
Governance challenges and fragility will be considered as cross-cutting constraints to growth and poverty reduction.
The SCD aims to provide a development narrative that reflects the wisdom of evidence-based research and data with the input of all Mozambicans willing to provide their views. Please, help us take stock of the country’s development challenges and progress by entering your comments through March 15, 2021.
