Sustainable Private Sector Development in Mozambique fisheries

MEP were contracted by the World Bank to identify what can be done in terms of public expenditure, programs and policies to help further encourage private sector investment in Mozambique fisheries.

The objective of the consultancy was to determine what Mozambique can do to improve or put in place these requirements (amongst others) to encourage private sector development and, ultimately, to see the longer term benefits that this can create in economic growth and social development for the country. The project involved extensive engagement with stakeholders at all levels, including private sector investors, government officials, producer and trader committees, and all other key stakeholders around areas such as financing. The study also looked to manage investments carefully to ensure gender equality and inclusion.
