Our scope of work in Mozambique covers everything from reducing poverty, fighting HIV/AIDS and malaria to protecting the natural environment.
Crown Agents first assisted Mozambique in 1979 during the rehabilitation of a power station in Cabo Delgado Province and in 1988 it established a permanent office in Maputo to manage Japan's first non-project grant aid.
Since then our work has expanded to include a health sector recovery project, three phases of Maputo Port rehabilitation, harmonising procurement procedures and building procurement capacity.
The USAID-funded Indoor Residual Spraying Project is helping to cut the number of deaths from malaria while two Japanese environmental grants and a forestry preservation project are also underway.
Under the Danida Programme Country Enabling Agreement for Mozambique we procure everything from vehicles, school books and HIV/AIDS awareness materials to IT equipment to benefit the education, health, agriculture, justice and environment sectors.
We also reformed the country's entire customs operation from 1997-2006 to increase revenue, alleviate poverty, facilitate legitimate trade and industry and achieve long-term sustainability.
Other projects we have supported include fleet rehabilitation, road restoration, public sector reform, revenue enhancement, trans-frontier conservation and tourism development.
