NDI and its local partner, The Centre for Research on Governance and Development (CPGD), have completed a study entitled: Youth’s Concerns and their Expectations for Socio-economic Development in Mozambique using focus group discussion methodology. The study, which was conducted during December 2015, analyzes youth’s views on the political and economic environment and their expectations for socio-economic development in Mozambique. A total of 485 young people (men and women aged 17-35) participated by responding to a structured series of open-ended questions, across Northern, Central and Southern Provinces in Mozambique. Discussions included youth affiliated with all three major political parties with parliamentary representation, as well as apolitical youth. The findings reveal that across the political spectrum, youth generally agreed on a number of issues such as having increased access to education, employment opportunities, housing, loans, professional training, and societal justice.
