Description and results


This project aims to strengthen the capacity of the National Institute for Statistics in Mozambique to improve the availability of reliable and comprehensive sex-disaggregated population data. The goal is to produce gender-sensitive analysis for evidence-based decision making and policy formulation, with a focus on sexual reproductive health and rights, HIV and gender equality. This initiative contributes to the empowerment of women and girls by closing the gap in gender data. Project activities include: (1) providing technical assistance and results reporting expertise in the delivery and analysis of the census; (2) commission at least 8 thematic studies upon completion of the census, including gender analysis and recommendations to advance gender equality; (3) develop a post census strategy to create increased demand from decision-makers for data informed research including campaigns designed to promote thematic studies in the public and policy domains, enhancing their policy impact.

Expected results

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) reliable, consistent and comprehensive sex-disaggregated population data and gender-sensitive analysis, with a focus on sexual and reproductive health, rights of women and girls, HIV and gender equality, available to government, civil society and private sector decision-makers; and (2) strengthened business processes and gender-sensitive data collection and analysis in the National Institute for Statistics.

Results achieved

Results achieved as of March 2020 include: (1) implementation of the fourth Mozambican Population and Household Census, which has been instrumental in enabling the country to make evidence-based decisions in its planning and in its response and reconstruction efforts after the devastating Idai and Kenneth cyclones in 2019; (2) implementation of an online tool permitting institutions and the public to access data of the Census; and (3) training of 101 officials on comprehensive and effective gender statistics for decision-making, including compilation, processing, analysis and reporting of gender statistics.
