The true contribution of agriculture to the economic development of Mozambique

The true contribution of agriculture to the economic development of Mozambique

Almost all the Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries place agriculture at the top of priorities. However, it is unclear how financially the priority is considered. The undervalued perception of agriculture is in contrast with the high political importance attached to the sector in Mozambique and in almost all SADC countries. The objectives of this paper are to:

  • emphasise the economic and non-economic roles of agriculture in Mozambique
  • present and discuss the true contributions of agriculture to the economic development of Mozambique; and
  • suggest policies and strategies for sócio-economicdevelopment of agriculture in Mozambique
