Mozambique: National Urban Profile
Mozambique, which is located on the south eastern coast of Africa, has a population of 20 million. Emerging from a devastating civil war in 1992, the country has grown at an annual rate of nearly 10 percent. The post war recovery has been described as a success story. Mozambique, like other developing countries, is facing a new problem related to the new urban migrants.
Mozambique’s urban population is made up of 7 millions inhabitants. Most of the urban population in Mozambique live in informal settlements with no access to basic urban services. Mozambique has partnered with UN-HABITAT with the joint objective of improving the living conditions of the urban poor.
