This article discusses empirical results from a business climate survey (BCS) and from value chain analyses for Mozambique and draws conclusions for practical policy advice. The analysis of the data shows that the business and investment climate (BIC) differs markedly between regions and sectors. It is argued that tools relying exclusively on national approaches for assessing the BIC, such as the World Bank Doing Business surveys, are not able to capture this heterogeneity and therefore have to be complemented by BCSs or value chain analyses in order to provide relevant and specific guidance for BIC reforms. Moreover, the article discusses the usefulness of BCSs as tools for creating ownership and leverage in policy advocacy.
