Abstract

This paper considers the impact of agriculture and international trade development on income distribution and economic activity in Mozambique. A social accounting matrix multiplier decomposition model is used—in particular, an extension of the standard model that details the process of income distribution through the economy's institutions. When we focus on the impact on rural low-income households, the emphasis is on the food crop and food-processing sectors.
