The Mineral Resources Management Capacity Building Project is part of the Government of Mozambique’s effort to increase economic development through poverty reduction and employment growth. This growth should be done by improving governance, empowering the populace, and promoting greater transparency and accountability through improving the regulatory framework and enhancing the effectiveness of public sector institutions, in particular the mining sector. The project should also intend assist in attracting increased private investment which would foster the growth and contribute to poverty reduction in the country. Expected impacts include: i) Value added to the annual growth rate of the mining sector; ii) value added to the share of mining sector in GDP; and iii) Increase in the systematic application of EIA and consultative processes in mining activities. The project comprises five main components, namely: (1) Institutional Reform and Capacity Building; (2) Geological Infrastructure; (3) Environmental Management; (4) Small Scale and Artisanal Mining and; (5) Project Management.
The overall objective of the project is to strengthen the institutional capacity and regulatory framework for the mining sector in Mozambique, in order to encourage increased private investment in the mining sector in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner.
The project which spanned the whole country in terms of geological and mining coverage and impact should primarily benefit government institutions; the outputs should benefit private sector investors who should have more accurate information to make sound investment decision. Additionally it should also benefit small scale and artisanal miners.
