Effective Governance Project Launches in Mozambique

Our new Effective Governance project in Mozambique will focus on supporting the government to improve effectiveness, with a view to relieving poverty.

Mozambique has a population of over twenty four and a half million people, more than half of whom live in poverty. Following the election of President Filipe Nyusi, in April 2015 the Government of Mozambique has launched their five year plan, Plano Quinquenal do Governo, which sets out their aim to achieve inclusive growth.


This is an important moment for the future of Mozambique and we’re privileged to be a part of it. We’re now working alongside leaders who represent almost half a billion people across Africa and are able to have more impact than ever before on the lives of some of the world’s poorest people.

Nick Thompson Managing Director, Effective Governance

The project in Mozambique will bring the number of our Effective Governance partner countries to eight across East, West and Southern Africa. The full list includes Nigeria, Rwanda, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Ethiopia and Mozambique.


The work described here was carried out by the Tony Blair Africa Governance Initiative, it is now being continued by the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.
