SDI is currently identifying possibilities to empower and strengthen community organizations to actively engage in city development in Mozambique. To date, there is little evidence of local NGOs dedicated to programming with the urban poor or the type of organized urban communities that exist in other SDI affiliate countries. The goal is for this process to emerge from community exchanges with SDI affiliates in the region. Preliminary peer-to-peer exchanges have been conducted between federation members from Zimbabwe and communities in Maputo. The Secretariat is exploring opportunities to partner with the NGO AVSI, which has a long-standing presence working with communities in Maputo.
