Introduction

This report was produced by Michigan State University for USAID/Mozambique as an input into the mission’s decision making regarding agricultural programming in Nampula and Zambézia provinces. We collaborated closely with ELIM Serviços Ltda (Tatiana Mata) and Dr. Antony Chapoto of the Indaba Agricultural Policy Research Institute in Zambia.

Our approach is rooted in the concept of the structural and rural transformation of economies, in which rising specialization and productivity in farming is paired with the movement of labor off the farm into better-paying activities in self-employment or wage labor. Because such a transformation is a sine qua non for broad poverty reduction, our empirical analysis focuses on evidence of this happening in Mozambique, and the program options we lay out are designed to foster it.
