About the study
Traditional economic indicators for calculating economic growth do not include environment-related components. In this study, the author uses data from Mozambique’s national accounts following recommendations of the System of Environmental Economic Accounts (SEEA) and the Handbook on statistics for economies based on natural resources to compile GVAs (Gross Value Added) and GDPs (Gross Domestic Product) adjusted for natural resource depletion for the period between 2005 and 2020. The results show that the adjusted values are 1.4% lower in comparison with the nominal values.
