Mozambique - Country partnership framework for the period FY17 - FY21 (English)

This Country Partnership Framework (CPF) sets out the World Bank Group’s (WBG) proposed strategy in Mozambique for the period FY17–FY21. The CPF supports the objectives of the government of Mozambique (GoM) for growth and poverty reduction, which are outlined in the Five-Year Plan of the government for 2015–2019. The FY17–FY21 CPF aims to support Mozambique in achieving its objective of creating more inclusive growth through employment promotion and improving productivity and competitiveness in a sustainable manner. It focuses on a well defined set of objectives reflecting the government’s program, development priorities identified in the Systematic Country Diagnostic (SCD), and the World Bank’s comparative advantage relative to other development partners. The government program and medium-term strategy is articulated in its five-year development plan, the Programa Quinquenal do Governo (PQG). The PQG’s overarching theme is to achieve more inclusive growth through employment promotion and improving productivity and competitiveness. The PQG has five priorities: (a) consolidate national unity, peace, and sovereignty; (b) human and social capital development; (c) promote employment and improve productivity and competitiveness; (d) economic and social infrastructure development; and (e) ensure sustainable and transparent management of natural and environmental resources. It also has three supporting pillars: (a) consolidate the democratic rule of law, good governance, and decentralization; (b) promote a balanced and sustainable macroeconomic environment; and (c) reinforce international cooperation. The PQG represents significant continuity in the focus of the government program but also some innovations. The plan avoids a sectoral approach to the country’s development challenges using a more integrated approach. The government is also seeking greater integration of the cross-cutting issues within the identified priority areas.
