This report provides a holistic review of Mozambique’s laws and policies relating to the recognition of indigenous peoples’ and local communities’ rights. It identifies the legal and policy measures and mechanisms that are useful to indigenous peoples and local communities and the impact natural resource exploration and extraction, large-scale agricultural land use and infrastructure and/or development projects have on their rights. It is intended to help the reader to understand the ways in which different legal and institutional arrangements either support or undermine such rights. It also explores strategies for promoting community participation in the management of these resources and in the local and national development process.
