Country Programme Mozambique 10446.0 (2007–2009) was prepared in line with the United Nations Development Assistance Framework for 2007–2009, which in turn was based on the new Poverty Reduction Strategic Plan. WFP will contribute to joint outcomes in the areas of education, social protection and HIV/AIDS through this country programme.
The two components of the country programme are:
- Education and Child Development: day school feeding, take-home rations for orphans and girls, boarding school feeding (to be phased out by the end of 2009) and support for the Government in developing and managing a national school feeding programme.This component, which addresses Strategic Objectives 4 and 5, will be carried out partly in joint programmes with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the United Nations Children’s Fund and the United Nations Development Programme.
- Support to a Community Safety-Net System: food for orphans and other vulnerable children living in families and orphanages and for increased Government capacity to manage safety nets. This component, which addresses Strategic Objectives 2 and 5, will benefit from joint programming with the United Nations Children’s Fund and the United Nations Development Programme.
The budget takes into account the limited resources for development and has been capped at US$41.9 million; the available resources cover the needs of 381,400 beneficiaries during the three years.
