NIRAS – a long-term and reliable partner in Mozambique
Our work in Mozambique began more than three decades ago and we have been implementing projects in the country every year since then, building up the experience and local knowledge required to successfully deliver to both our clients and to project beneficiaries. In 2011, we opened a permanent office in Maputo (registered as NIRAS Moçambique LDA), from which our five full-time staff support projects both locally and regionally. Our local network involves individuals, partners, and enterprises located in the three regions of the country in both rural and urban areas. We also work extensively with academic institutions, public institutions, and NGOs.
Following from Mozambique’s key development priorities, our work is concentrated in areas from rural development to governance decentralisation and public sector reform. The Mozambican office can be a hub to supporting fact finding and implementation for projects in South Africa, Malawi, and Eswatini (Swaziland). Having Portuguese as the official language, tenders for Brazil, Angola, Cabo Verde, St. Tome, can be supported by the staff from Mozambique. The combination of deep local knowledge and expertise with world-class international technical skills explain why donors including the European Commission, GIZ, KfW, SDC, the World Bank, DFID, and Nordic donors have chosen NIRAS to implement their projects in Mozambique.
