The Mozambique SAKSS program is country-driven and country-owned with the overall objective of strengthening the capacity of national institutions, in particular MINAG/DE in strategic analysis and knowledge support so that it is effectively able to identify, coordinate and support the planning and implementation of agriculture and rural development strategies. Through a partnership with MINAG and other in-country partners (both public and private), the program provides strategic analysis to help fill knowledge gaps and undertake synthesis of existing knowledge and information in order to directly inform current and future policy and investment options for agriculture in Mozambique. Through this process, the program not only contributes to strengthening local capacity to undertake such work in the future but also promotes a think tank culture within national systems; ultimately strengthening the country's reliance on research-based evidence during national dialogues and decision making.
