Switzerland supports development of Northern Mozambique with eight million euros


Switzerland will disburse US$10 million (eight million euros) for an inclusive development project in the provinces of Nampula and Niassa, in northern Mozambique, indicates an official statement.

“This initiative, which aligns with the priorities of the Government of Mozambique, combines local decentralization with climate change adaptation and its financing, as well as increasing local accountability”, says Laila Sheikh, deputy head of the Swiss Mission in Mozambique, quoted in the statement.

The amount will be made available to local governments (municipalities and districts), which should apply it in strategies and initiatives that increase the levels of participation of women, men and young people in local governance processes.

“The project’s effectiveness and sustainability will be ensured by the broad interaction, coordination and synergies between actors and institutions at the various levels of government, who work daily to improve the living conditions of citizens in Nampula and Niassa provinces,” stated Laila Sheikh.

In addition to Switzerland, which will finance the project, the initiative has the support of German Cooperation in Mozambique, the United Nations Capital Development Fund (UNCDF), among others.
