The province of Cabo Delgado has lagged behind the rest of Mozambique and remains the country’s poorest province, heavily reliant on agriculture which is vulnerable to climatic changes and food price fluctuations. The Aga Khan Foundation (AKF) began operations in Cabo Delgado in 2002, in response to a request from the Government of Mozambique. AKF’s rural development projects focus on reducing dependency on agriculture and promoting enterprise such as handicrafts. More at AKDN.
