Description and results


This project is a major component of Canada's contribution to food security in Mozambique. Through this project, CIDA contributes to Mozambique's Food Production Action Plan. This plan focuses on increasing agricultural production and commercialization, while reducing dependence on imported foodstuffs. Canada is one of several international partners that have joined to finance and support this plan defined by the Government of Mozambique. CIDA is working in close collaboration with other donors and the Government of Mozambique to strengthen the effectiveness of its aid through: focusing on effective, transparent, and accountable country systems; increasing coordination and harmonization among donors; and reinforcing mutual accountability. This project also fosters greater policy dialogue between CIDA, the Government of Mozambique, and partners, which helps to reinforce efforts for effective, focused aid and long-term development results. Continuous monitoring and evaluation of this project is undertaken in coordination with other donors. The results expected from this project include an increased distribution of key agricultural inputs such as seeds and fertilizers, more extensive networks among farmers to share best practices and market information, and an improved regulatory environment conducive to private sector development.

Results achieved

Results achieved at the end of project activities included: 1,723 hectares of irrigation systems built; land ownership formalized for 51 communities; and 432,234 farmers assisted by public extension services (239,072 men and 193,162 women).
