CapacitaMoz is a platform that represents building capacity in, and for Mozambicans. Our definition of Capacity Building is: the process by which individuals and organizations obtain, improve, and retain the skills, knowledge, competence, experience, tools, equipment and/or other resources needed to do their jobs competently.
Mozambique LNG, in the context of Local Content, is actively contributing to the capacity building of local stakeholders; either of Mozambican citizens, local Micro, Small & Medium Enterprises (MSMEs), or local institutions. Such is achieved by fostering industry development in Mozambique by strengthening local business competitivity through customized solutions, by and for local stakeholders.
To achieve its objectives, CapacitaMoz operates within 4 main pillars, being:
Identify and Prioritize needs
CapacitaMoz is the platform designed to house all the initiatives related to Mozambican MSMEs, current or aspiring entrepreneurs, citizens, and institutions’ Capacity Building driven by Mozambique LNG. The origin of its name derives from the Portuguese translation for building capacity, being Capacitamos, and a play on words of the target audience which are Mozambicans, hence, CapacitaMoz.
It's centered around activities and mechanisms aimed at maximizing knowledge and skills transfer to the Government, Mozambican companies, and national citizens.
CapacitaMoz also serves as a hub for parties to access all Mozambique LNG led Capacity Building initiatives and training programs, events, business opportunities, and information regarding the broader market and other business development programs in Mozambique.
CapacitaMoz’s mission is to make a strong impact locally, conduct initiatives that result in positive growth and improvement, and be a reference of high regard in the market when it relates to contributing to building the capacity of Mozambican citizens, companies, and institutions.
Within this mission, CapacitaMoz will house generalized trainings that occur in-person (if permitted by the COVID-19 mandates) and online, allowing for a nationwide reach of participants and to conduct trainings simultaneously.
The implementation of initiatives will be in partnership with Private and Public institutions as the implementation partners.

TotalEnergies’ Local Content strategy extends to not only project direct requirements, but also to the status of economic development in the Cabo Delgado Province. In alignment with this Local Content strategy, the Cabo Delgado Market Study was commissioned to establish the Province’s competences in terms of supply of goods and services, by providing market information on various actors, including companies, business associations and technical vocational training institutes, and was conducted by Deloitte. The key sectors assessed during the study were civil and construction, transport and logistics and general trade.
The study also allowed the establishment of an updated database of 1137 companies, the quantitative and qualitative analysis of the ecosystems of the main actors in each of the sectors and mapping of the main sources of supply in the province.
