This policy brief reports findings from a study undertaken by researchers at the Institute for Poverty, Land and Agrarian Studies (PLAAS) at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) investigating the formalisation of customary land and its implications for women’s livelihoods and the security of their land tenure in Mozambique. The research was conducted in two villages in Nhamatanda District, Sofala Province between 2021 and 2022. A total of 63 women in Siluvo and Metuchira villages were reached through in-depth interviews; coordination to learn their life histories; and focus group discussions. In addition, a survey of 140 households across the two villages was conducted.
