Conference on Poverty and Well-being in Mozambique: Analysis of the 2014/15 Household Survey Results

This conference brought together policy advisers, development practitioners, and government representatives to discuss the results of the 4th Mozambique poverty assessment based on the 2014/15 household budget survey. These long-awaited poverty estimates at national and regional level include both consumption and multidimensional measures, and could influence national policy and international cooperation.

The conference aimed to raise public awareness on the issue of poverty and highlight the importance of poverty estimates and its policy implications. By identifying the most important characteristics of poverty for the Mozambican case we can aid decision makers in the country in tackling the challenge of improving living conditions for the worst off.

This conference took place on 25 October 2016 at the Joaquim Chissano Conference Centre in Maputo.
