PHLM CBA Mozambique Report - Mar 2017
18 March 2017


This report presents results of cost-benefit analysis of modern post-harvest technologies (metal silos and hermetic bags) with particular focus on maize, beans and cow peas in Mozambique. Sub-Saharan Africa has been incurring huge post-harvest losses estimated at $4 billion per year with cereal losses high at 14 million tonnes accounting for about 25% of the total crop harvested. This scenario presents justification to find ways of reducing or eliminating post-harvest food losses.
