Mozambique Coastal Cities Adaptation Program (CCAP)
Mozambique’s coastline, which houses more than half of the country’s population of 26 million, is facing more frequent and severe storms and flooding is magnified by sea level rise and coastal erosion. CCAP is working with two vulnerable cities along Mozambique’s coastline to improve their municipal planning processes and adapt to climate change. The project has created climate change vulnerability maps to inform infrastructure siting, is building affordable “climate smart” houses, is using green infrastructure for ecosystem based adaptation, and has designs and implemented a mobile phone-based early warning system.
