Geographic terms:Mozambique
Abstract:Portuguese text. English sum: This article analyses the processes of local development in Eastern Province of Zambia, an area which has been affected since 1987 by an influx of Mozambican refugees. It is suggested that although the impact of the refugees on the local economy was multidimensional, it was also fundamentally positive for the region. Economic effects resulted not only from the injection of capital through an international assistance programme aimed at the refugees, but also directly from the increase in population, which created new production and markets. There were also important social and political changes, although to a certain extent, the decision to establish a settlement programme for the refugees reduced the possibility of integrated development for refugee and local communities.
