This is a series of short papers, closely focused on issues of relevance for understanding the Mozambican food and agricultural system. These were produced under the Mozambique Policy Analysis and Planning Capacity for Improved Food Security and Nutrition Outcomes (MOZCAPAN) project (Projecto de Fortalecimento da Capacidade de Análise de Políticas e Planificação para a Melhoria da Segurança Alimentar e Nutrição). These are currently stored in the archive.
