Supporting the Policy Enabling Environment for Development


Mozambique Woman Planting Crops


SPEED+ supports agriculture policy reform that will attract new investors, create jobs, and enhance the international competitiveness of Mozambique's farmers and traders. SPEED+ makes it easier to do business in agriculture by making access to land more certain and easier to transact; by making taxes simpler and smarter, especially for smallholders; by improving regulations for specific crops, such as cashew; and by supporting institutions critical to competitiveness in major commodities, such as the Mozambique Institute for Cereals and the Mozambique Commodity Exchange.  SPEED+ also works to eliminate barriers that make it harder for women to engage as farmers, traders and entrepreneurs. SPEED+ works closely with the Ministry of Agriculture and Food Security (MASA), the Ministry of Land, Environment, and Rural Development (MITADER), the Ministry of Industry and Trade (MIC) and the Tax Authority (AT).
