Capacity building in higher education in Mozambique and the role played by co-operating foreign agencies: the case of the World Bank

Chilundo, Arlindo

Abstract:
The main purpose of this paper is to shed light on the Mozambican experience of designing higher education projects for submission to international partners in the request for funding.  The author maintains that ownership of higher education policy depends on involving all major stakeholders in the country, including all higher education institutions.  This constitutes the milestone leading to a successful design of projects.  A national higher education strategic plan is necessary to ensure a good conception of projects that could be funded by the World Bank.  The paper provides an overview of the process leading to the Higher Education Project (HEP-1), a World Bank project, its components and implementation.  In conclusion the author emphasises the reforms that the HEP-1 project had brought about within the higher education sector, in particular, legislation.
