Mozambique’s coastal cities serve as economic hubs and primary drivers of the country’s development. Due to lack of infrastructure, city planning and geographic location, combined with sea level rise, frequent flooding and projected changes in extreme weather events, Mozambique’s coastal cities are among the most vulnerable in Africa to climate change. By the 2040’s, Mozambique’s coast could lose up to 4,850 km2 of land and almost 1 million people could be forced to migrate inland. USAID is working with national and local governments, local institutions and leaders, and communities to incorporate climate change into city planning and undertake adaptive measures from the national to community level.
