"Mozambique is committed to the fight against poverty. The Government has adopted a number of well-articulated plans for poverty reduction and growth. International development assistance plays a crucial role in Mozambique's fight against poverty. The main focus of this research is to study the Mozambican aid architecture, examining how funds are transmitted to Mozambique and its impact on development efforts, how recipients and donors interact in such processes, how aid is coordinated at the country level, and how broad-based are the national planning processes and aid delivery mechanisms."
