The Independent Evaluation Office of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) conducted an Independent Country Programme Evaluation (ICPE) in Mozambique in 2019, covering the period between 2017 and early 2019 of the 2017-2020 programme cycle. In the last decade, the Republic of Mozambique registered positive GDP growth fuelled by the expansion of extractive industries and foreign capital investment. However, positive economic development has not translated into substantive improvements in standards of living, employment and poverty alleviation. Mozambique is also often vulnerable to tropical cyclones, floods, droughts and seawater intrusion, making the country one of the most vulnerable to climate change in Africa. UNDP has been working in the country since 1976. Its current programme has focused efforts on sustainable and inclusive economic transformation; resilience and natural resources management; and good governance, peace and social cohesion. The major contributors to non-core resources have been the Global Environment Facility (GEF), the European Commission, the United Nations Environment Programme, the Government of Norway, the Mozambique One UN Fund and the Government of Germany. Total programme expenditure during 2017-2018 stood at $15.6 million.
