Mozambique - Urban Land Regularization

Metadata Updated: December 2, 2016

This baseline survey was developed for the impact evaluation of activities related to 'improving land access in urban hotspot areas.' The site-specific interventions in priority bairros within Nampula city and Monapo vila are the subject of this impact evaluation. Activities to be evaluated include: a) Satellite mapping and inventory exercise; b) Capacity building of the local cadastral offices; c) Piloting a sound approach to area-wide registration of land rights.

The evaluation approach is to use a non-experimental comparison group difference-in-difference (DiD) design approach for this evaluation. Data was collected at household level from both the treatment and control areas before and after the intervention. The baseline report for the evaluation presents the results of the baseline survey conducted in 2010-11 of 1,690 households in two urban cities of Nampula province. The results of the baseline data analysis aim to provide a picture of the status of surveyed households in study areas of Nampula city and Monapo vila across three broad categories: a) socio-economic characteristics (i.e., demographics, sources of income, asset holdings, and access to credit; b) land characteristics (i.e., land ownership, land markets, land investments, perceptions on tenure security and knowledge about land law and rights); and c) welfare characteristics (i.e., level of income, consumption and expenditure).
