At a Glance
Mozambique's extensive coastline heightens the country's vulnerability to tropical cyclones and storm surge flooding. More than half of the population lives in low lying coastal areas, putting communities and key resources at risk. Increased flooding and drought threaten the agriculture sector, which employs roughly 75% of Mozambique's workforce. In addition to economic implications, these stressors also increase risks of food insecurity and water-related illness such as cholera. Agricultural expansion, wildfires, and excessive harvesting are driving greenhouse gas emissions in Mozambique's highest emitting sector, land use and forestry change.
