About Mozambique

As of 1999, public expenditure on education was estimated at 2.9% of GDP.

In 1997, there were 7,143 students and 915 teachers engaged in post-secondary education. The objective of the government is to promote the spread of education at all levels through democratization guided by the state. Since the country still had an estimated adult illiteracy rate of 55.5% in 2000 (males, 40%; females, 71%), literacy training is a high-priority area.

During the 1980s and early 1990s, Mozambique's agricultural sector was barely functional due to a combination of manmade and natural causes. The prolonged drought of 1981 to 1984 was followed by the floods and cyclone of 1984. By 1986, a famine emerged from renewed drought and civil war. Drought continued into 1987, followed by floods and locusts in 1988. Normal rainfall came in 1990, only to be followed by renewed drought in 1991 and 1992. In some regions food production declined by 80%, and in 1992 the food deficit reached a record 1.3 million tons. Normal rains returned in 1993, but the ongoing food relief requirement, exclusive of war refugees, was put at one million tons in 1994. Good rains and harvests helped the Mozambican economy grow by 5% in 1995 and 1996. By 1999, agricultural production was 5.5% higher than during 1989–91.
