  • Abstract

    This data collection project is a joint effort by the three institutions named above. Focal points in the different organisations were Eduardo Nguenha (ANAMM), Armin von Schiller (DIE) and Salvador Forquilha (IESE). The idea to collect this data was orginally conceived within the project «Determinantes sociopolíticos e administrativos da tributação local em Moçambique.». This project was implemented within the context of the 52nd Postgraduate Training Programme of the Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik/ German Development Institute (DIE) funded by the al Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Partners of this broader project included the DIE, the Instituto de Estudos Sociais e Económicos (IESE), the Associação Nacional dos Municípios de Moçambique (ANAMM) and Programa de Boa Governação Financeira (Cooperação Alemãpara o desenvolvimento em Mozambique). This broader project was also able to financially support the implementation of this data collection effort. However, this project would not have been possible without the support of various persons involved at several step of the process: Bernardino António, Saida Bunk, Dominique Klawonn, Jonathan Krull, Julia Leininger, Abel Manhique, Onofre Muianga, Alina Sennewald, Conrad Steinhilber and Juliane von Boeselager. We also acknowledge the great support by the student assistant Ricardo Lengler, Madeleine Mockenhaupt and Franziska Schwingeler. Last but certainly not least, we want to express our gratitude to the municipalities and their officials who took the time to share their information with us. We sincerely hope that creating this database and following up on it will offer a solid basis to discuss the situation of municipalities and avenues to improve their administrative capacities.
