Country Programming Framework (CPF) for Mozambique

In line with the SDGs, FAO developed the global Strategic Framework 2022-2031, which is folded in Four Betters: Better production, Better nutrition, Better Environment, and a Better life for all.

The Country Programming Framework (CPF) for Mozambique will be anchored in these Four Betters, each one subdivided into a number of Programme Priority Areas that will be selected according to the context and national priorities.

Hence, FAO Mozambique defined the vision, pillars and results of the CPF 2022-2026, as detailed below.

Vision: By 2026, FAO Mozambique contributes to the innovative, diverse, efficient, inclusive, resilient and sustainable transformation of food systems through better production, better nutrition, a better environment and a better life for all.


Pillar I: Economic Diversification and Sustainable Livelihoods – aims at inclusive economic empowerment of both women and men, through improved, diversified and climate adapted production and productivity in agriculture, livestock, forestry, fisheries and aquaculture.

FAO’s contribution will focus on promoting an enabling environment for agri-food value chain development and enhancing the capacity of Government and food producers for increased production and productivity. This includes promoting a gender-responsive enabling environment, supporting both women and men’ integration in the value chains, access to markets and benefiting from agribusiness and agri-food trade opportunities. It will strengthen linkages among actors, increase access to safe and quality food and improve nutrition and healthy diets.


Pillar II - Sustainable Management of Natural Resources and the Environment: aims at transparent, gender-responsive, and sustainable management of the environment and natural resources.

FAO will promote protection, restoration and sustainable use and management of forests, combat desertification, reduce land degradation and biodiversity loss, and support climate change adaptation. It will also promote the sustainable use of aquatic resources for better economic, environmental and social benefits, including for women and youth.


Pillar III - Climate Resilience and Emergency Response: aims at increased resilience to shocks and disasters, with a particular attention for women and youth, and improved risk management among institutions, communities and other stakeholders. This pillar adds emergency interventions reflected in the Humanitarian Response Plan, and it contributes to integrating inclusive and adequate shock preparedness and response in the social protection system.

FAO will strengthen the capacity of institutions to develop policy and legal frameworks and improve coordination, monitoring and evaluation for climate resilience and emergency response.
