The One Million Initiative aims for 70% of the population using safe drinking water and 50% using improved sanitation in 18 districts in three provinces of central Mozambique. This paper evaluates health effects of the initiative using a panel survey, analyzing the contributions of latrine ownership, hand washing, and use of improved water sources to health. It is unique in providing rigorous evaluation of such a large scale WASH program. The authors find a large impact of CLTS on adults and older children, and a similar impact in improved water sources on health of young children.
The bias in catch time series data that occurs when improvements in fisheries catch reporting systems (e.g.,consideration of a previously unmonitored fishery, or region) lead to an increase in current catches without thecorresponding past catches being corrected retroactively, here called 'presentist bias' is described, and twoexamples, pertaining to Mozambique and Tanzania are given. This bias has the effect of generating catch timeseries at the aggregate that appear 'stable' or increasing when in fact catches are declining over time, withpotentially serious consequences for the assessment of the status of national fisheries, or in interpreting theglobal landings data disseminated by the FAO. The presentist bias can be compensated for by retroactive nationaldata corrections as done, e.g., through catch reconstructions.

Participatory Planning for Climate Compatible Development in Maputo, Mozambique is a practitioners' handbook that builds upon the experience of a pilot project that was awarded the United Nations 'Lighthouse Activity' Award.Building upon a long scholarly tradition of participatory planning, this dual-language (English/Portuguese) book addresses crucial questions about the relevance of citizen participation in planning for climate compatible development and argues that citizens have knowledge and access to resources that enable them to develop a sustainable vision for their community. In order to do so, the author proposes a Participatory Action Planning methodology to organise communities, and also advances mechanisms for institutional development through partnerships.
UNICEF - Government of the Netherlands Partnership for Water Supply, Sanitation and Hygiene;
The Government of the Netherlands and UNICEF collaborated on this mid-term impact assessment of the One Million Initiative--a program that intends to bring sustainable access to safe water, sanitation, and hygiene for one million people in rural Mozambique by 2013. The approach is participatory, with user communities and schools taking leadership, supported by the government, NGOs, and the private sectors. An important component evaluated here is the community approach for total sanitation (CATS), which merges a community-led total sanitation approach with education components. Though it is only a mid-term evaluation, the paper includes an assessment of program sustainability, arguing that it is useful to identify factors that may influence sustainability as early as possible.
