Detailed description Back

The overall objective is to obtain an objective and independent diagnosis of the progress recorded in the area of PFM, by collecting and analysing data available from the period 2016-2018 (see detailed in 3.3), applying the PEFA methodology at national and sub-national level. This assessment, the 5th PEFA assessment for the country, will occur at a timely moment given that it will provide not only the indicative balance of the progress of the PEFP 2016-2019, but will also guide the planning process for the preparation of the next Public Finance Strategic Plan. It will function as an updated diagnostic.

The evaluation of the municipalities (3 from each region for comparison) was included in view of the decentralization progress in the country, within the framework of the revision of the Constitution of the Republic of Mozambique. The municipalities of Maputo, Matola, Tete and Nampula were selected for this evaluation (details below). The objective is to gain a better understanding of the current situation and obstacles at the level of the local authorities, and also to use the results of the assessment to compare current and future progress.
