USAID’s Supporting the Policy Environment for Economic Development (SPEED+) project will provide expert technical services to the Government of Mozambique to support economic and structural reform in the areas of agriculture, trade, business enabling environment, energy, water and biodiversity conservation. It will also promote the areas of improved fiscal transparency, tax policy and economic and environmental governance. SPEED+ will provide expert technical assistance and training for public sector institutions and civil society organizations at the national and local levels. It will support global initiatives such as Feed the Future, the G8 New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition, Trade Africa, Power Africa, the USAID Biodiversity Policy, and the President’s Strategy to Combat Wildlife Trafficking.
Following on the heels of strong progress in 2014 and early 2015 to draft both a Cabinet decree and implementing regulations in close coordination with the government and the private sector, SPEED+ will support, the Government of the Republic of Mozambique (GRM) to roll out newly drafted regulations governing the private provision of water in Maputo and environs. The GRM plans to roll out these regulations nation-wide.
