Inclusive growth in Mozambique – scaling-up research and capacity

The Inclusive growth in Mozambique (IGM) is a research and capacity development programme supporting Mozambique since 2015 in designing evidence-based policies that support inclusive growth benefitting the poorest and most vulnerable groups. It is implemented by the National Directorate of Economic and Development Policies (DNPED) of the Ministry of Economy and Finance of Mozambique (MEF) and the Centre for Economic and Management Studies (CEEG) of the Faculty of Economics of the Eduardo Mondlane University (UEM) in partnership with the Development Economics Research Group at the University of Copenhagen (UCPH-DERG) and the United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER).
