In 2020, USAID Food for Peace (FFP) commissioned the Pulte Institute to conduct a Market Analysis to generate insights to inform the design of food security activities in the Zambézia province of Mozambique. The activities studied included the Bellmon determination and the selection of food assistance modalities, such as cash, vouchers, and in-kind commodities purchased in the United States, regionally or locally.

The final Market Analysis was designed to provide accurate and up-to-date information for USAID FFP and its future implementing partners, providing a robust evidence base on domestic food production and the availability of storage facilities in Mozambique. In addition to assessing the feasibility and possible unintended impacts of in-kind food assistance, this Market Analysis also provides information on the feasibility and potential limitations of alternative transfer modalities, such as vouchers or cash.

Funding for the report was provided by USAID FFP through the Research Technical Assistance Center (RTAC), a network of academic researchers generating timely research for USAID to promote evidence-based policies and programs.  RTAC is led by NORC at the University of Chicago.
