In 2008, MCC partnered with Mozambique to implement a five-year, $506.9 million compact designed to increase the country’s economic growth by investing water and sanitation, roads, land tenure, and agriculture.
The compact focused on Mozambique’s northern provinces, home to half the country’s population but where the economy has seen slow growth in comparison to the southern provinces.
Farmer Income Support Project
The Farmer Income Support Project aimed to eliminate biological and technical barriers hindering economic growth among farms and targeted enterprises, while supporting diversification into other cash crops.
Land Tenure Services Project
The Land Tenure Services Project aimed to address the issue of land insecurity and access, by improving policies and regulations and by helping specific beneficiaries better understand how to register their land rights.
Rehabilitation/Construction of Roads Project
The Roads Project aimed to improve access to markets, resources and services by increasing public transportation access.
Water Supply and Sanitation Project
The Water Supply and Sanitation Project aimed to improve access to safe, reliable water supplies and sanitation services.
