This chapter discusses how rural societies reconstruct, using the district of Sussundega in Central Mozambique as a case study. First, the chapter discusses the determinants of household livelihoods in Sussundega, focusing on farm and non-farm incomes, access to land and other productive factors, as well as the importance of road infrastructure and education and health provisions. It then examines poverty and the high level of income inequality in the district. Finally, it discusses the implications of the analysis for poverty reduction more generally.

Keywords:   rural societies, Sussundega, Mozambique, livelihoods, incomes, infrastructure, education, health provisions, poverty
