Maize Exportation Threat to Rural Food Security? Results of a Survey of Rural Households in Northern Mozambique

This study examined the food security strategies adopted by rural households in both years of good harvest and years of bad harvest. Marketing year 2001/2002 (a poor harvest) and year 2000/2001 (a better harvest year) were used to exemplify the alternative strategies adopted by households in different years. The study focused on the case of northern Mozambique because of the importance of food crop production in the zone and the active food grain markets for domestic and foreign trade particularly in times of low domestic and regional production.
