Mozambique to carry out agric census to gauge poverty
afrol News, 1 March - Mozambique is expected to sign a grant deal with the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO) and the Italian government that will give capacity to the country to strengthen its agricultural production statistics.
Local media reports said today both FAO and the Italian government representatives were to be in Maputo for the historic signing.
The deal will help Mozambique to amongst others carry out its livestock census while also looking into statistical production.
The country also believes that with the data in hand, it would be able to measure easily its footsteps towards reaching the Millennium Development Goals.
With many of its inhabitants living below the poverty line despite the vast shore line, and many dependent on land agriculture, the government of Mozambique is also geared towards investing more into productive land use as part of its poverty reduction strategy.
