In terms of values, the weaknesses relate to transparency, gender equity and diversity. While the environment in which Mozambican civil society operates has improved, citizens are hindered in the exercise of their rights and the state is at times undemocratic and marred by an inefficient bureaucracy. The report reckons that any improvement in the dimensions of structure and environment needs to be accompanied by the promotion of values such as participatory democracy, inclusivity, transparency, tolerance, and non-violence. This will in turn increase society’s confidence in civil society and improve the currently low levels of impact of civil society on governance and fundamental developmental challenges in the country.
