This chapter discusses key findings of the Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper progress report on the Republic of Mozambique. The monitoring of 62 output indicators of the 2013 Plano Económico e Social showed that 44 percent of the indicators have achieved the planned targets, 50 percent have not attained the targets but have made significant progress, and the remaining 6 percent of the indicators are lagging far behind. In terms of objectives, the human development objective is showing the best performance, whereas promotion of employment still has challenges and constraints to overcome in fulfilling its targets.

The inclusiveness of growth depends on the extent of access to economic and social opportunities. This paper applies the concept of social opportunity function to ascertain the inclusiveness of growth episodes in selected African countries. Premised on the concept of social welfare function, inclusive growth is associated with increased average opportunities available to the population and improvement in their distribution. The paper establishes that the high growth episodes in the last decade in the selected countries came with increased average opportunities in education and health; but distribution of such opportunities varied across countries, depending on the country-specific policies underpining the growth episodes.

The Poverty Reduction Action Plan (PARP) 2011–14 is the medium-term strategy of the Government of Mozambique for putting into operation the Five-Year Government Program (2010–14). This medium-term instrument is part of the National Planning System (SNP) and is aligned with the vision of Agenda 2025. To achieve the objective of inclusive economic growth for reducing poverty, the government has defined general objectives, to which government efforts will be directed. The PARP is a dynamic and flexible instrument.

The Poverty Reduction Strategy Papers (PRSPs) on the Republic of Mozambique review the country’s macroeconomic, structural, and social policies in support of growth and poverty reduction, and external financing needs and major sources of financing. It is essential to guarantee that mechanisms of democratization are present within the political parties and to develop participative democracy. Monitoring and evaluation is also a means of keeping abreast of not only the government, but also organizations in civil society, the Mozambican legislature, and the cooperation partners.

This Joint Staff Advisory Note provides advice on the PARPA (the Mozambican Poverty Reduction Strategy Paper) implementation in 2004 and its main goals for 2005. It draws mainly on the government’s Annual Progress Report (APR) on PARPA implementation for 2004, and the 2005 Economic and Social Plan (PES). The IMF staff agrees with the APR view that a number of the Millennium Development Goals are within Mozambique’s reach but that, to achieve others, Mozambique will require the help of the international community to make further progress and attract more investment.

The report focuses on the social sectors, agriculture, and governance. However, the report fails to highlight the importance of tackling decisively certain structural reforms that are critical to achieving the poverty reduction objectives of sustaining growth and reducing poverty. The composition of spending is evaluated, and then, it is compared with actual expenditure. Despite these advances, the efficiency of the education system in Mozambique is still low. The involvement of domestic and foreign partners will be taken into account in the planning process.
