#SDGAction10501
More and better jobs in Cabo Delgado province and Nampula province - Harnessing the opportunities of the New Economy in Mozambique
Description/achievement of initiative

In Mozambique, the extractive industry sector is expanding, yet is not generating sufficient local jobs and income - particularly for the rapidly growing youth population. The extractive sector should have a positive and transformative impact on development and governance. Therefore, the programme has been working with extractive industries as well as on mega-projects to generate economic inclusive growth and opportunities for the whole population. An UN analysis indicates that the five largest mega-projects in the country have generated 3.4 million dollars in profit, but only 33 direct jobs.

Implementation methodologies

This SDG Fund joint programme focuses on the provinces of Nampula and Cabo Delgado, where the extractive sector is active. The programme will promote and facilitate gender-sensitive employment policies and work force skills. Also, it will improve small business production and business linkages to selected multinational enterprises (MNEs). The programme has a total budget of $3 million. Out of this, 50% is funded by the SDG-F.
