Housing Profile Mozambique (Portuguese)

Access to adequate housing in Mozambique is a considerable challenge, only likely to increase due to the anticipated population growth, particularly in urban centres. While this scenario presents challenges, it is also an opportunity to promote housing along with livelihoods in a resilient manner, aligned with a more sustainable urban development. This holistic view is especially important considering that most houses in Mozambique are built by residents themselves. The Housing Sector Profile provides relevant information to all parties involved in housing delivery in the country, supporting both the supply of adequate housing and the implementation of global and national commitments such as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Agenda 2063, the New Urban Agenda, the Government's Five-Year Plan and the National Housing Policy.
