The EENA in Mozambique was conducted between December 20014 and May 2015 by the Liga de ONGs em Mocambique (JOINT).
Findings from the report highlight that the Law on Associations that regulates formation of CSOs needs to be revised to be more specific on issues such as the relationship between civil society and the government at different levels. Other challenges facing CSOs are around access to different funding sources which is hindered by a lack of capacity within CSOs to formulate project proposals as well as CSO not being formally registered, especially in the case of small rural-based organisations. CSOs in Mozambique have also had to fight for the space to have open discussions with governing bodies to influence development policies and legislation.
