Poverty Reduction

UNDP in Mozambique works on the principle that economic growth will not reduce poverty, improve equality and produce jobs unless it is inclusive. Inclusive growth is also essential for the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). The globalization process, when properly managed, becomes an important ingredient for inclusive growth. In this context, UNDP in Mozambique endeavors to make real improvements in people’s lives, opening up their choices and opportunities.
