Since the cessation of conflict,
Mozambique has achieved impressive economic growth and has
become an example of successful post conflict reconstruction
and development, moving from a one-party state to a
multiparty democracy and from a socialist, command economy
to a market-based economy. Mozambique’s development has been
strongly supported by foreign aid, and since 2001 average
annual disbursements of official development assistance
(ODA) have amounted to over 1 billion dollar, or 12 percent
of gross domestic product (GDP). Strong economic growth has
contributed to a decline in income poverty, but the level of
overall poverty remains high. This country program
evaluation (CPE) focuses on the Bank’s program for
FY2001-08, examining the following questions: did the Bank
correctly assess the problems Mozambique faced?; was the
Bank’s strategy appropriate for meeting the country’s
development needs?; how effective was Bank assistance in
implementing those strategies?; what were the outcomes of
the assistance?; and to what extent did the Bank, other
development partners, the government, or exogenous forces
contribute to outcomes? The CPE is organized as follows:
Chapter one assesses Mozambique’s economic and social
development and identifies major development priorities and
constraints facing the country. Chapter two is an overview
of the Bank’s program of lending and analytic and advisory
activities (AAA). Chapters three, four, and five cover
thematic aspects: stabilization and growth (including
infrastructure and agriculture development), poverty
reduction and human development, and governance. Chapter six
covers International Finance Corporation (IFC) activities in
Mozambique, and chapter seven assesses partnership and
harmonization. The last chapter contains conclusions,
lessons, and recommendations.
