*INCLE: International Narcotics Control and Law Enforcement Funds

Since the end of its civil war in 1992, Mozambique has experienced much economic and political progress. Its economic growth rate has been among the highest in Africa and its democratic institutions are improving. However, significant rule of law and security challenges remain. Mozambique’s borders and coastlines are vast and porous, law enforcement capacity is low, corruption is a continuing challenge, and the transshipment of illicit drugs is increasing. As a result, the Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL) is building the capacity of Mozambique’s law enforcement systems to deal with these challenges, particularly those related to managing the country’s lengthy coastlines and borders. For instance, INL programs are training law enforcement personnel in trafficking in persons, border control, financial crimes, and customs, skills that will help improve safety and security in Mozambique as well as consolidate the nation’s recent progress.
