SAIIA’s Governance of Africa’s Resources Programme (GARP) and the South Africa’s Foreign Policy and African Driver Programme (SAFPAD) have conducted extensive fieldwork in Mozambique. The issues examined covered the contemporary drivers of Mozambique’s foreign policy; governance of Mozambique’s natural resources including the rapidly expanding gas and coal sectors, as well as conservation and socio-economic perspectives on coastal ecosystems, particularly related to small-scale fisheries and mangrove ecosystems.
SAIIA and the Maputo Corridor Logistics Initiative held two Dissemination Conferences to share the results of this fieldwork and discuss Mozambique’s future.
