MOZAMBIQUE COFAMOSA

November 2007 - The Government of Mozambique received a €1.2 million grant to undertake an irrigation project preparation study to enable the mobilization of funds for the development of 10,000 hectares of irrigated farmland. Sugar cane has been proposed in the pre-feasibility study as the main crop to be grown in the area to supply cane for sugar/ethanol production. The implementation of COFMOSA Irrigation Project is expected to help reduce poverty levels in the Moamba and Magude districts, in the province of Maputo, in addition to increasing the foreign currency earning, through increased exports of high value crops that will include sugar and/or ethanol.
